FIPS 140 Certificate Support

SafeLogic's MaintainCert Service is the Final Piece You Need to Keep Your FIPS Certification and Software in Active Status Over Time


Once you get a FIPS 140 certificate, your next challenge is keeping it active.  With MaintainCert, SafeLogic does everything necessary over time to keep NIST from declaring your certificates 'historical'.


How Many Times Will You Need to Revalidate your FIPS Certification To Avoid It Going 'Historical'?

  • FIPS validation is not a one-and-done proposition

  • Frequent changes in FIPS 140 requirements, security vulnerabilities and other changes can trigger the need for revalidation

  • Any changes to a traditional module may force revalidation. So can additional platform support or discovered vulnerabilities

  • If your cryptographic module is not architected with FIPS validation in mind, ANY change to your product could require re-validation

If you don’t go through the revalidation process when you need to, NIST will flag your certificate as ‘historical’. That means it is no longer active and cannot be used for any new acquisitions by government agencies. Using SafeLogic's FIPS 140 certificate support software will be your needed solution.



MaintainCert is a Unique, White-Glove Service That Supports BOTH Your Software and Certifications, Ensuring They Remain Active

MaintainCert takes over upon the delivery of RapidCert to ensure both your CryptoComply software and your FIPS certification remain in good standing with NIST through SafeLogic's FIPS 140 certificate support and our FIPS 140 certificate maintenance.

If anything happens that could potentially invalidate your certificate and/or cause NIST to declare it ‘historical’, SafeLogic will take all necessary actions to keep your certificate in active status over time


The Upcoming Transition to FIPS 140-3 Illustrates the Value of MaintainCert

As a SafeLogic customer, there is no need to worry about the FIPS 140-3 transition because SafeLogic has you covered and will make it happen for you in a seamless fashion, all as part of our MaintainCert offering.

  • SafeLogic is actively working on getting FIPS 140-3 modules validated and certificates issued

  • SafeLogic will continue to keep our clients’ FIPS 140-2 certificates in active status

  • When FIPS 140-3 modules and certificates are available, will migrate our clients to the new modules and certificates

  • There is absolutely no rush to get to FIPS 140-3 because SafeLogic continues to maintain an active FIPS 140 certification for your company

Procurement officers do not care whether you have a FIPS 140-3 or 140-2 certificate as long as you have an active certificate in your company’s name.

FIPS 140-3 Validation is coming soon
