What is NIST?

NIST (“National Institute of Standards and Technology”) is a United States based standards body whose influence on the file transfer industry is felt most heavily through its FIPS 140-2 encryption and hashing standard.  It is also the keeper of many other security standards which must be met if file transfer technology is used in or to connect with the federal government.
