FIPS 140-2 covers the secure design and implementation of a cryptographic module
, including roles, services and authentication; physical security; operational environment; cryptographic key management; electromagnetic interference/electromagnetic compatibility; self-tests; design assurance; and mitigation of other attacks.
 JIS X 19790: Cryptographic module
The AES validation test suite is part of NIST's CMVP, which encompasses validation testing for cryptographic modules
Enova Technology, a market leader in innovative data security solutions, today announced its X-Wall MX+ xF and X-Wall MX+ xN advanced single chip cryptographic modules
capable of encrypting entire SATA disk drive (SSD included) in-line at SATA 6Gbps speed have gained full approval from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and Communications Security Establishment of Canada (CSE) Cryptographic Module
Validation Program (CMVP) for Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 140-2 Level 3 and Level 2 validation respectively.
"We're proud to be working with Dell, Biometric Associates, LP and other partners to provide a secure way for military personnel to benefit from the latest mobile technology while providing DoD officials with the peace of mind of knowing that sensitive government data is protected." Using Good for Government's mobility suite, the new solution will pass and manage sensitive data from Microsoft Exchange servers located in DoD data centers via Good's email application to end-point Android devices wirelessly, using a FIPS 140-2 validated cryptographic module
with AES encryption to ensure data protection for data-at-rest as well as data-in-transit.
Digi has designed the cryptographic module
into its)(Press Ethernet Bridge, a 900 MHz wireless Ethernet bridge, in order to present the product as "FIPS 140-2 Inside." OEMs can follow this same design process to achieve rapid time to market for products bearing the official NIST FIPS 140-2 logo.
The company said that users of the software suite will be able to leverage the following enhancements: support for Windows 7 Touch technology, enabling users to interact with UNIX and mainframe applications through touch interface; Jump Lists in the Task Bar and Start Menu, providing faster access to frequently accessed items and frequently performed tasks; Multiple Documents preview, which reduces the time spent switching between applications and open sessions; and new FIPS 140-2 validated cryptographic module
, which provides stronger security to connections.
The company recently received certification from the National Security Agency (NSA) for its Sierra[TM] II programmable cryptographic module
. Sierra II is now NSA certified for the protection of voice and data traffic up through the Top Secret/SCI level.
What Is At Risk?" The Crypticom Link Encryptor Model 3122 (CLE 3122) is the first cryptographic module
designed to implement the new AGA 12-1 recommendations entitled "Cryptographic Protection of SCADA Communications." CLE 3122 is part of family.
RSA BSAFE Crypto-J 3.3.3 encryption software has received validation that it conforms to the Federal In formation Processing Standards (FIPS) 140-1 security requirements for cryptographic modules
. FIPS 140 validation through the FIPS 140-1 Cryptographic Module
Validation Program is required before any technology vendor can provide federal departments and agencies with information technology products.
Logica has also won its first Cryptographic Module
Validation Programme (CMVP) testing initiative with a European vendor within the security industry.
The early adoption of AES is perhaps more remarkable because, prior to the approval of FIPS 197, AES algorithm testing was not available through NIST's Cryptographic Module
Validation Program (CMVP), a program for assurance testing of cryptographic modules
jointly operated by NIST and the Canadian Government Communications Security Establishment.
