Expedited FIPS Validation
SafeLogic's RapidCert Expedited Validation Program is the Second Step on Your Path to FIPS Certification
Documentation The module under test must be thoroughly documented, and supporting assurance documentation must be developed to support vendor claims.
Testing An accredited FIPS 140 testing laboratory evaluates the documentation and tests the module. The documentation may need updating based on unresolved issues or comments from the testing laboratory.
Validation Upon successful completion of testing, NIST's Cryptography Module Validation Program (CMVP) reviews the lab's test report and the module’s Security Policy for accuracy and completeness. A successful review leads to NIST issuing a FIPS 140 validation certificate.
SafeLogic revolutionized the industry 12 years ago when it introduced expedited FIPS validation and accelerated FIPS certification based on a technique called rebranding
RapidCert builds on CryptoComply, which has already been FIPS validated and certified
Not only fast, RapidCert also does not require any additional effort by the customer
We purposefully keep the FIPS 140 validation boundary extremely narrow to minimize the need for revalidations
RapidCert turns a time-consuming, expensive and frustrating process into three easy steps:
Our FIPS validation boundary excludes your proprietary code and is isolated from your product, so that you can update and iterate releases independently from FIPS 140 requirements.
FIPS certificates may need to be revalidated several times during their lifetime to avoid going historical. Only SafeLogic has you covered against this risk at a fixed cost with its MaintainCert service.
