SP 800-90 A Rev 1 B and C

DRAFT Draft SP 800-90 Series: Random Bit Generators 
800-90 A Rev. 1: Recommendation for Random Number Generation Using Deterministic Random Bit Generators 
800-90 B: Recommendation for the Entropy Sources Used for Random Bit Generation 
800-90 C: Recommendation for Random Bit Generator (RBG) Constructions

In light of recent reports, NIST is reopening the public comment period for Special Publication 800-90A and draft Special Publications 800-90B and 800-90C.
NIST is interested in public review and comment to ensure that the recommendations are accurate and provide the strongest cryptographic recommendations possible.
The public comments will close on November 6, 2013. Comments should be sent to RBG_Comments at nist.gov. 
In addition, the Computer Security Division has released a supplemental ITL Security Bulletin titled "NIST Opens Draft Special Publication 800-90A, Recommendation for Random Number Generation Using Deterministic Random Bit Generators, For Review and Comment (Supplemental ITL Bulletin for September 2013)" to support the draft revision effort.
