Corsec would like to congratulate our partner, Ctrl IQ, Inc., on successfully completing the testing of their cryptographic algorithms.
As part of the FIPS 140-2 and FIPS 140-3 module validation submission process, vendors must complete Cryptographic Algorithm Validation Program (CAVP) validation testing of approved (i.e., FIPS-approved and NIST-recommended) cryptographic algorithms and their individual components.
To achieve this milestone, Ctrl IQ partnered with Corsec, completing the testing process and receiving the following certificates:
About Algorithm Testing and FIPS 140
FIPS 140-2 / FIPS 140-3 are 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, which applies to Federal agencies using validated cryptographic modules to protect sensitive government data in computer and telecommunication systems. FIPS 140 provides stringent third-party assurance of security claims on any product containing cryptography that may be purchased by a government agency.
FIPS 140 is mandated by law in the U.S. and very strictly enforced in Canada. FIPS 140 has gained worldwide recognition as an important benchmark for third party validations of encryption products of all kinds. A FIPS 140 validation of a product provides end users with a high degree of product security, assurance, and dependability.
