Cryptographic Module Validation Program CMVP

Information on CST Lab Accreditation and Fees

In order to perform FIPS 140 conformance testing, a laboratory must become an accredited CST laboratory under the National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program (NVLAP). Module testing results produced by an accredited CST laboratory can then be submitted to the CMVP in order to seek FIPS 140 module validation. Further information can be found in the CMVP Management Manual.
