If you work with the U.S. or Canadian governments and handle sensitive or protected information, your cryptographic modules must be validated to the FIPS 140-2 standard.

FIPS is the Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS). It’s a security standard for software, hardware and firmware developed by the U.S. and Canadian governments, and all products sold or submitted to federal agencies in those countries must obtain FIPS 140-2 validation if they process “Sensitive But Unclassified” (SBU) or protected information. That applies to U.S. law enforcement agencies that interact with entities like the FBI’s Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) and encompasses all their communication systems.

This technical brief, provided by Digi, explains the key features of the FIPS 140-2 standard, its validation levels and the applications and industries where it is required.
