Corsec Helps HP BladeSystem Complete Another Certification

Corsec would like to congratulate our partner, HP Enterprise on successfully completing the FIPS 140-2 validation process for the HPE BladeSystem c7000 and c3000 Enclosure with OA v4.40 and iLO 4 v2.11. These certifications underscore HPE’s commitment to providing secure and third-party validated products to Federal organizations and global enterprises. We are pleased and excited to have worked with the HPE team through this process, over the past year. You can find the certificates on NIST’s website.

About FIPS 140-2

The FIPS 140-2 standard is a joint effort by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in the United States, and the Communications Security Establishment Canada (CSEC), under the Canadian government.  The Cryptographic Module Validation Program (CMVP), headed by NIST, provides module and algorithm testing for FIPS 140-2, which applies to Federal agencies using validated cryptographic modules to protect sensitive government data in computer and telecommunication systems. FIPS 140-2 provides stringent third-party assurance of security claims on any product containing cryptography that may be purchased by a government agency.

The FIPS standard, which is mandated by law in the U.S. and very strictly enforced in Canada, is also currently being reviewed by ISO to become an international standard. FIPS 140-2 is gaining worldwide recognition as an important benchmark for third party validations of encryption products of all kinds. FIPS 140-2 validation of the products will provide users with a high degree of security, assurance, and dependability.
