Cryptographic Module Validation Program CMVP

Certificate #2419


Module Name
TippingPoint Intrusion Prevention System
FIPS 140-2
 Historical Reason
Moved to historical list due to sunsetting
Overall Level
When operated in FIPS mode with pick-resistant locks and opaque cover installed as indicated in the Security Policy. The module generates cryptographic keys whose strengths are modified by available entropy
Security Level Exceptions
  • Roles, Services, and Authentication: Level 3
  • Mitigation of Other Attacks: N/A
Module Type
Multi-chip standalone
Inserted transparently into the network, the HP TippingPoint Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) is an in-line security device that performs high-performance, deep packet inspection to protect customer networks from attack. The IPS blocks malicious and unwanted traffic, while allowing good traffic to pass unimpeded. In fact, the IPS optimizes the performance of good traffic by continually cleansing the network and prioritizing applications that are mission critical.
