Multi-Chip Stand Alone
Description
The IBM(R) Security QRadar(R) Cryptographic Security Kernel is multi-algorithm library providing general-purpose cryptographic services. The purpose of the module is to provide a single API for cryptographic functionality that can provide centralized control over FIPS-Approved mode status, provide availability of only FIPS-Approved algorithms or vendor-affirmed implementations of non FIPS-Approved algorithms, and provide for centralized logging and reporting of the cryptographic engine.
Tested Configuration(s)
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) v6.5 running on a IBM System X3650 M4 BD (single-user mode)
FIPS Algorithms
AES Cert. #3131
CVL Cert. #397
DRBG Cert. #753
HMAC Cert. #1981
RSA Cert. #1686
SHS Cert. #2600
Triple-DES Cert. #1794
Other Algorithms
Diffie-Hellman (key agreement; key establishment methodology provides between 112 and 202 bits of encryption strength); MD5; HMAC MD5; RSA (key wrapping; key establishment methodology provides between 112 and 256 bits of encryption strength)
