Corsec is pleased to announce that Ionic Security Inc.’s FIPS Crypto Module has been awarded FIPS 140-2 certificate number 2761 by the Cryptographic Module Validation Program (CMVP). This module has now completed and finalized all the necessary requirements for the FIPS 140-2 validation process, and can now be found on the NIST 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.
