Need FIPS 140 Validated Encryption to Sell to Federal Agencies?  Or to Obtain Common Criteria, FedRAMP or CMMC Certification?  Learn About Your FIPS 140 Validation Options

FIPS Whitepaper

FIPS 140 is a standard established by the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to specify a minimum level of cryptographic security for deployment in the United States federal government agencies. Cryptographic modules that complete FIPS 140 validation receive a publicly listed FIPS certificate on the NIST website. Without this validation, government procurement agents are instructed to block the acquisition of your product. 

In this whitepaper, you will learn what FIPS 140 is, why FIPS 140 certification is so essential for companies selling technology products to the federal government, what is required to obtain FIPS certification, and why alternative approaches to expediting and maintaining FIPS certification can be risky.
