Cryptographic Module Validation Program

Certificate #2792

Details

Module Name
BC-FNA (Bouncy Castle FIPS .NET API)
Standard
FIPS 140-2
Status
Active
Sunset Date
11/13/2021
Validation Dates
11/14/2016
Overall Level
1
Caveat
When installed, initialized and configured as specified in the Security Policy Section 8 and operated in FIPS mode. The module generates cryptographic keys whose strengths are modified by available entropy. No assurance of the minimum strength of generated keys.
Security Level Exceptions
  • Physical Security: N/A
Module Type
Software
Embodiment
Multi-Chip Stand Alone
Description
The Bouncy Castle FIPS .NET API is a comprehensive suite of FIPS Approved algorithms implemented in pure C#. All key sizes and modes have been implemented to allow flexibility and efficiency, and additional algorithms, including some post-quantum ones, are available in non-approved operation as well.
Tested Configuration(s)
  • Windows 10 Enterprise on .NET framework 4.6.1 running on a Lenovo Flex 3
  • Windows 10 Pro on .NET framework 4.6.1 running on an Asus T100HA (single-user mode)
  • Windows 7.0 SP1 on .NET framework 4.5.2 running on HP Zbook 14 G2
  • Windows 8.1 Pro on .NET framework 4.5.2 running on a HP Zbook 14 G2
