VMware NSS Cryptographic Module
Standard
FIPS 140-2
Status
Historical
 Historical Reason
Moved to historical list due to sunsetting
Validation Dates
05/14/2014
Overall Level
1
Caveat
When installed, initialized and configured as specified in the Security Policy Section 3 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
  • Mitigation of Other Attacks: N/A
Module Type
Software
Embodiment
Multi-chip standalone
Description
