wolfSSL FIPS 140-2 Certification Status Update

wolfSSL will soon have FIPS 140-2 level one validation for the wolfCrypt crypto engine! We have entered the lab process and will be out of the lab as soon as August 15, 2014. Our application will then be submitted to NIST for final review.

The FIPS certification will support a broad range of wolfSSL customers, specifically those who sell to the US government.

FIPS, Federal Information Processing Standards, consists of public security and communication standardizations developed by the US government. These standardizations are for use by nonmilitary government agencies and contractors.

wolfSSL is on the NIST FIPS 140 in process list, which is here:  https://csrc.nist.gov/Projects/cryptographic-module-validation-program/Modules-In-Process/Modules-In-Process-List (wolfCrypt has since received certificates #2425 and #3389)

We will keep our blog updated on our FIPS certificate progress, but if you would like more information regarding wolfSSL’s FIPS certification, please contact us at facts@wolfssl.com, or call us at +1 425 245 8247.
