I have traced through the mod_ssl and the OpenSSL FIPS code as best I can and I believe that the SSLRandomSeed configuration parameter given in the mod_ssl.conf file simply doesn't do anything useful ...
What is the relationship between the Suite B algorithms and FIPS 140-2 certification? Does OpenSSL meet both criteria? From what I've read, it seems that OpenSSL's crypto library implements many ...
How to use TPM chip along with OpenSSL FIPS Object Module without modifying OpenSSL FIPS Object Module (to avoid Private Label certification)? Should we add an engine interface in OpenSSL module as ...
Does anyone know of any work/papers/articles comparing the relative strengths and weaknesses of NSS and OpenSSL? EDIT: In case there aren't any existing documents/articles, I would certainly ...
Let's say I need to write a simple application for signing/checking some data. The hard part is, that it must be FIPS 140-2 compliant. I was thinking to do it using OpenSSL FIPS Object Module 2.0 but ...
I am working on a security-related project and have to make sure it is FIPS 140-2 compliant. According to my understanding, FIPS compliance is compliance at hardware as well as software level. ...
A deceptively simple question. How does OpenSSL compare to FIPS enabled OpenSSL? Is it any less secure? How do I tell? If I were concerned about security, not the NIST standard, is there any real ...
I have a private key in PEM format that was generated by OpenSSL FIPS Object Module v1.2 using a proprietary third party tool (that I cannot avoid using). This third party tool encrypted the private ...
