Description
Microsoft's Kernel Mode Cryptographic Module (FIPS.SYS) is a general-purpose, software-based cryptographic module residing at the Kernel Mode level of the Windows Operating System. It runs as a kernel mode export driver (kernel-mode DLL) and encapsulates several different cryptographic algorithms in an easy-to-use cryptographic module accessible by other kernel mode drivers. It can be linked into other kernel mode services to permit the use of FIPS 140-1 Level 1 compliant cryptography.
