What is FIPS-certified?

Also known as: n/a

The Federal Information Processing Standard 140-2 (or FIPS 140-2) is a cryptography standard that non-military U.S. federal agencies, as well as government contractors and service providers, must comply with in order to work with any federal government entities that collect, store, transfer, share and disseminate sensitive but unclassified (SBU) information. During FIPS certification, the file transfer software and client and server applications are each independently tested to confirm they meet FIPS standards and are also checked for security vulnerabilities, predictable number generation, and reckless disposal of keys.
