What is BSI according to Germany?

What is BSI according to Germany?

BSI is a kind of organization in Germany which is equivalent to NSA in USA. It is trying to provide standards and guidelines to all the government organizations as well as private organizations in their country. The countrymen who designed Enigma now have an organization something like NSA. Does that mean we are going to see new algorithms replacing Triple-DES etc?

Also there is a new framework coming up from SOx especially for Europe called the EuroSOx. People argue it would be similar, however.
