Cryptographic Module Validation Program CMVP

Certificate #2370


Module Name
FortiOS™ 5.0
FIPS 140-2
 Historical Reason
Moved to historical list due to sunsetting
Overall Level
When operated in FIPS mode. The module generates cryptographic keys whose strengths are modified by available entropy. There is no assurance of the minimum strength of generated keys
Security Level Exceptions
  • Cryptographic Module Ports and Interfaces: Level 3
  • Roles, Services, and Authentication: Level 3
  • Design Assurance: Level 3
  • Tested: FortiGate-300C with the Fortinet entropy token (part number FTR-ENT-1)
Module Type
Multi-chip standalone
The FortiOS is a firmware based operating system that runs exclusively on Fortinet's FortiGate/FortiWiFi product family. The FortiOS provides integrated firewall, VPN, antivirus, antispam, intrusion prevention, content filtering and traffic shaping and HA capabilities.
