A series of challenges that face effective standardisation of cryptographic techniques are discussed. In many cases these challenges are illustrated with case studies, primarily focussing on experience within ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 27/WG 2, the international standards committee responsible for developing standards for cryptographic methods. Priorities for improving the effectiveness of the standards-making process are also highlighted.
