FIPS 140 Validation Services

Get FIPS Validated in Two Months. Or Two Years. It's Your Choice.


With the growing requirement for FIPS 140 validation of cryptographic software, more and more companies are finding their government go-to-market efforts blocked by a lack of certification.  SafeLogic's FIPS 140 validation services and solutions gets you validated in your name in just two months, then keep your certificate active and valid for years.

FIPS 140 Validation Has Become an Essential Security Compliance Requirement

  • Companies selling technology that performs encryption to the federal government must obtain NIST certification confirming their cryptography has been tested and approved for government use

  • FIPS 140 validation has been so successful, it has been adopted as mandatory by numerous additional security regulations including FedRAMP, StateRAMP, CMMC v2, Common Criteria and DoD APL

  • Without an active FIPS certificate in your company's name, federal procurement agents may block acquisition of your products.  You could be frozen out of all markets requiring FIPS validation, in return needing FIPS 140 solutions


When it Comes to FIPS, Don't Confuse Validation, Certification and Compliance

  • Many people assume these are synonyms.  With FIPS, they are not.  In fact, there is a huge difference between them.

  • Validation means your company's cryptography module has passed a formal testing process with a NIST approved lab. Certified means your company has received a certificate in its name from NIST that verifies your module has been validated

  • Some claim using another company’s certified module constitutes 'FIPS compliant’. But compliance is not always good enough.  Compliant today may also not be compliant tomorrow if someone else’s module goes out of compliance (e.g., goes historical).  Historical certificates cannot be used for new government acquisitions

Also, government procurement agents may block acquisition of products that do not have FIPS certification in their own name listed in NIST's validated modules database.

Why take the chance?

Why Do Leading Technology Companies Leverage FIPS Validation-as-a-Service?

  • Less Expertise and Effort Required. Sure you could hire and train your own team to work with a FIPS lab to achieve and maintain FIPS certification, but couldn’t your engineers deliver more value to your customers on other projects?

  • Faster Time to Market.  If you are new to federal markets, did you want to start generating revenue in two months or two years?

  • Predictable Fixed Costs Over Time.  How much will it cost you to develop your encryption software, get it certified by NIST, then get it recertified multiple times over it’s lifetime to avoid going Historical? 



Why is SafeLogic Your Best Option for FIPS Validation-as-a-Service?

No company knows more about FIPS validation than SafeLogic.  We revolutionized the industry 12 years ago with the first expedited validation program, RapidCert.  Now we are revolutionizing the industry again with the first FIPS certification managed service, MaintainCert.
