Green Hills cryptographic toolkit is FIPS 140-2 validated
Green Hills Software has announced that its ISS Embedded Cryptographic Toolkit received FIPS 140-2 Level 1 (Federal Information Processing Standard) Validation from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in the US.
“Our ISS Embedded Cryptographic Toolkit is the only proprietary solution that meets all the NSA’s Suite B standards to protect the world’s critical infrastructure by keeping private information private for the future,” said Dan O’Dowd, founder and CEO, Green Hills Software.
The NIST has validated the FIPS 140-2 testing results of the Cryptographic Module incorporating the Green Hills Integrity security services embedded cryptographic toolkit in accordance with the Derived Test Requirements for FIPS 140-2, Security Requirements for Cryptographic Modules.
FIPS 140-2 specifies the security requirements that are to be satisfied by a cryptographic module utilised within a security system protecting sensitive information within computer and telecommunications systems.
NIST has assigned the FIPS 140-2 certificate number #1719 to the GHS HA-ECT module, which has been posted on the CMVP website.
