Certificate #2563


Module Name
IBM Security SiteProtector System Cryptographic Module
FIPS 140-2
 Historical Reason
Moved to historical list due to sunsetting
Overall Level
When installed, initialized and configured as specified in the Security Policy Section 3. The module generates cryptographic keys whose strengths are modified by available entropy
Security Level Exceptions
  • Roles, Services, and Authentication: Level 2
  • Physical Security: N/A
  • Design Assurance: Level 2
  • Mitigation of Other Attacks: N/A
Module Type
Multi-Chip Stand Alone
SiteProtector is a centralized management system that unifies management and analysis for network, server, and desktop protection agents and small networks or appliances. The SiteProtector is used as the central controlling point for IBM ISS appliances deployed on the network.
