Cryptographic Module Validation Program CMVP

Certificate #2334


Module Name
Dell W-IAP155 and W-IAP155P Wireless Access Points with Dell AOS FIPS Firmware
FIPS 140-2
 Historical Reason
RNG SP800-131A Revision 1 Transition
Overall Level
When operated in FIPS mode with tamper evident labels installed as indicated in the Security Policy. The module generates cryptographic keys whose strengths are modified by available entropy
Security Level Exceptions
  • Mitigation of Other Attacks: N/A
Module Type
Multi-chip standalone
Dell W-Series 802.11ac Wi-Fi access points operate at gigabit speeds, offering extreme performance for mobile devices. In FIPS 140-2 mode, W-Series APs in conjunction with a Mobility Controller support the IEEE 802.11i/WPA2 client standard along with optional Suite B cryptography. W-Series APs also support wireless intrusion detection/prevention services and wireless mesh topologies.
