Standard
FIPS 140-2
Status
Historical
 Historical Reason
Moved to historical list due to sunsetting
Validation Dates
6/14/2013

Software
Embodiment
Multi-chip standalone
Description
The Apple OS X CoreCrypto Module is a software cryptographic module running on a multi-chip standalone mobile device and provides services intended to protect data in transit and at rest.
Tested Configuration(s)
  • OS X 10.8 running on iMac with i7 CPU with PAA
  • OS X 10.8 running on iMac with i7 CPU without PAA (single-user mode)
  • OS X 10.8 running on Mac mini with i5 CPU with PAA
  • OS X 10.8 running on Mac mini with i5 CPU without PAA
