Year Standardization Organization Notes Regarding Standardization
2013 CRYPTREC [new] Selected for New e-Government Recommended Ciphers List (in Japanese)
2011 IETF RFC6272 referred to Camellia ciphersuites for TLS as Internet protocol for the SmartGrid.
Camellia ciphersuites based on ECC and HMAC-SHA-2, and GCM mode for TLS certified by IETF(RFC6367).
2010 IETF Introducing new Camellia ciphersuites using the newer cryptographic hash algorithms from the SHA-2 family for TLS1.2 (RFC5932). This document obsoletes RFC4132 [STANDARDS TRACK].
RFC5990 specified RSA-KEM in CMS referred to Camellia algorithm as key wrap algorithm.
RFC6030 specified PSKC referred to Camellia algorithm as format of symmetric key and key wrap algorithm.
ITU-T(International Telecommunication Union-Telecommunication sector)
Camellia was adopted in the security mechanisms and procedures for NGN (Y.2704).
2009 IETF Camellia Counter mode (CTR) and Camellia CBC-MAC (CCM) mode was certified by IETF (RFC5528).
Camellia-CTR and Camellia-CCM were certified as the IETF standard cipher (Proposed Standard) for IPsec (IKEv2, ESP) (RFC5529).
Camellia Algorithm number was certified as the IETF for OpenPGP (RFC5581).
2006 RSA Laboratories Camellia was specified as an approved cipher in the PKCS#11 (Public Key Cryptography Standard #11) , which is the cryptographic token interface standard.
2005 IETF Camellia was certified as the IETF standard cipher (Proposed Standard) for XML security URIs (RFC4051). This is the first domestic encryption algorithm to be certified.
Camellia was certified as the IETF standard cipher (Proposed Standard) for SSL/TLS cipher suites (RFC4132). This is the first domestic encryption algorithm to be certified.
Camellia was certified as the IETF standard cipher (Proposed Standard) for IPsec (RFC4312). This is the first domestic encryption algorithm to be certified.
ISO/IEC (International Organization for Standardization/International Electrotechnical Commission) Camellia is adopted for the first time as the ISO/IEC international standard cipher (ISO/IEC18033-3). It was chosen because of its recognition as an encryption scheme with excellent security and performance.
2004 IETF (Internet Engineering Task Force)

Internet standardization body
Camellia was certified as the IETF standard cipher (Proposed Standard) of S/MIME (RFC3657).
This is the first domestic encryption algorithm to be certified.
The technical specification for Camellia was publicly disclosed (RFC3713).
TV-Anytime Forum Camellia was specified as an approved cipher in TV-Anytime Rights Management and Protection Information for Broadcast Applications
2003 NESSIE (New European Schemes for Signature, Integrity and Encryption)

Selection project on the European recommendation of strong cryptographic primitives by EU (European Union)
Camellia is reported as an encryption scheme with excellent security and performance, and was selected as the only European recommended cipher from among the 128-bit block cipher applications inside and outside of Europe. Camellia was evaluated as having many points in common with AES such as security and performance.
CRYPTREC (Cryptography Research & Evaluation Committees)

Evaluation project on the e-government recommended cipher list by CRYPTREC Advisory Committee and CRYPTREC Evaluation Committee
Camellia is reported as an excellent secure encryption scheme, and was officially recognized as an e-government recommended cipher.
TV-Anytime Forum

An association that established the international standard for digital storage broadcast
Camellia was specified as an approved cipher in Bi-directional Metadata Delivery Protection. This is the same standard as that established by ETSI (European Telecommunications Standards Institute).
