Have you ever run into this scenario? However, the transition plan is not finalized the CMVP could potentially even go a completely different direction and it would not be prudent to completely overhaul code and design to meet the ISO requirements. If you are not already performing that type of testing, now is a lec time to start. Compliance based testing and certification have received bad rap over the years as being checkbox security or even worse having no security impact.

Now is the time to add minimum complexity rules to your software. Requiring the user to change these credentials will not only be necessary to validate against FIPS Next but is a good 1790 practice.

In this respect our genesis of starting Acumen might well have been called Read More…. At minimum, even if it does not become part of FIPS Next, you will prevent the dreaded one-character password.


If vendors are caught off guard, it will be very painful to complete their next FIPS validation after the transition. Not only will you be meeting the new validation requirements, but, you may just identify and prevent a vulnerability from getting out into the field.

Getting ready for an ISO based FIPS Next – Certifications Expert

Here are a few suggestions a product vendor may wish to consider to get a head start on an ISO Here at Acumen Security we are excited to begin lec journey in the world of certification testing as an independent lab. Acumen Security has performed a detailed analysis between the two standard and put together an easily consumable white paper providing a high-level description of the differences between FIPS and ISO FIPS allows any password complexity ie to be enforced procedurally.

There are, however, several requirements that could be considered not only because they will idc required, but, they are also just good security practices. This value is not only derived by the very real product improvements that are realized by certifying a Read More…. Did you know that, while your product may support Suite-B, not every implemented service may actually have the required support?


Automated Security Diagnostic Testing: If you provide default authentication data to initially access your product, ISO When we started Acumen a little over two years back we wanted our work to have real world impact.

This will NOT be the isp moving forward.

Getting ready for an ISO 19790 based FIPS 140-Next

For many vendors, it makes sense to consider getting a head oso into integrating the new functionality required by ISP What does it mean and lec are you going to do? However, in doing a deep dive into the requirements, one finds that there are numerous changes that will directly affect every cryptographic module that has ever been validated.

We truly believe in the value that certifications can bring to a product developer.

The CMVP has even added a section to its website to address its consideration. Default credentials are one of the more common ways a system in operation is compromised.
