If you are not already performing that type of testing, now is a good time to start. If you provide default authentication data to initially access your product, ISO Here are a few suggestions a product vendor may wish to consider to get a head start on an ISO This value is not only derived by the very real product improvements that are realized by certifying a Read More….

What does it mean and what are jso going to do? For many vendors, it makes sense to consider getting a head start into integrating the new functionality required by ISP Automated Security Diagnostic Testing: If vendors are caught off guard, it will be very painful to complete their next FIPS validation after the transition.


Here at Acumen Security we are excited to begin our journey in the world of certification testing as an independent lab. FIPS allows any password complexity requirement to be enforced procedurally. Now iecc the time to add minimum complexity rules to your software.

However, in doing a deep dive into the requirements, one finds eic there are numerous changes that will directly affect every cryptographic module that has ever been validated.

In 197790 respect our genesis of starting Acumen might well have been called Read More…. Requiring the user to change these credentials will not only be necessary to validate against FIPS Next but is a good security practice.

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 However, the transition plan is not finalized the CMVP could potentially even go a completely different direction and it would iao be prudent to completely overhaul code and design to meet the ISO requirements. 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.

Did you know that, while your product may support Suite-B, not every implemented service may actually have the required support? Default credentials are one of the more common ways a system in operation is compromised.


At minimum, even if it does not become part of FIPS Next, you will prevent the dreaded one-character password.

There are, however, several requirements that could be considered not only because they will be lso, but, they are also just good security practices. Have you ever run into this scenario?

We truly believe in the value that certifications can bring to a product developer. This will NOT be the case moving forward.

Getting ready for an ISO 19790 based FIPS 140-Next

The CMVP has even added a section to its website to address its consideration. Compliance based testing and certification have received bad rap over the years as being checkbox security or even worse having no security impact.

When we started Acumen a little over two years back we wanted our work to have real world impact.
