SHA-256 research paper and referencing FIPS

I wasn’t sure about whether to post this here or not, but I assumed that it would be better to ask the specific topic community, rather than a general one, in regards to rules of writing papers on a specific matter. I apologize if I have missed it.

Anyway, for my college thesis I’ve decided to do a full stack project on SHA256. I’ve read and researched the FIPS PUB 180-4 top to bottom, made a very inclusive code in Python for demonstration purposes (step-by-step printing on every transformation, conversion, compression etc.) and now the time has come to put it all into a final paper.
My issue is in the understanding of the rules on proper quoting and referencing. The FIPS PUB is written so straightforward and simple that it is almost impossible to paraphrase anything, or, "write it in your own words", especially the math there. And it doesn’t make sense to quote literally everything. This is my first paper where I am basing everything on math. With any other subject, it was mostly a combination, and it wasn’t an issue.

So, to summarize, my questions are as followed:

  1. Can I just make a note on the abstract or somewhere that most of the writings are translated references and definitions from the official FIPS PUB document? And if not, how can I do this by the book?
  2. Since the FIPS PUB is an official publicly available document, where does the law stand on using it’s information in papers and research such as mine?

Just to note, this is not a thesis nor a college major in the sense of the public recognition like a doctorate or similar. It’s a thesis paper with which I complete one class. I am not sure if I am translating these terms correctly though.
