FIPS 140

Innovation in Next Generation Encryption

Cisco is a leader in securing Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140 validations. We are dedicated to information assurance and complying with standards for both product depth and breadth. FIPS 140 is a U.S. and Canadian government standard that specifies security requirements for cryptographic modules. A cryptographic module is defined as "the set of hardware, software, and/or firmware that implements approved security functions (including cryptographic algorithms and key generation) and is contained within the cryptographic boundary." The cryptographic module is what is being validated.

FIPS 140-2 Compliance Review

Our Global Certification and Common Security Modules Team implemented an innovative approach to expedite FIPS certifications. They developed a crypto module that is already FIPS-validated and can be embedded in Cisco products. Because the crypto module is already FIPS-validated, the Cisco product can claim compliance to FIPS 140.

The compliance process verifies that the Cisco product has implemented cryptography according to standards and all applications that use cryptography, do so correctly. Cisco’s FIPS Compliance Reviews can be found in the table below.
