Cryptographic Module Validation Program CMVP

Certificate #2980


Module Name
Security Builder FIPS Java Module
FIPS 140-2
 Historical Reason
SP 800-56Arev3 transition
Overall Level
When operated in FIPS mode. The module generates cryptographic keys whose strengths are modified by available entropy
Security Level Exceptions
  • Physical Security: N/A
Module Type
Multi-Chip Stand Alone
The Security Builder FIPS Java Module is a standards-based cryptographic toolkit written in Java. It supports optimized Elliptic Curve Cryptography and provides application developers with sophisticated tools to flexibly integrate encryption, digital signatures and other security mechanisms into Java-based applications. The Security Builder FIPS Java Module is intended for use by developers who want government level security and can also be used in conjunction with other Certicom developer toolkits including Security Builder PKI and Security Builder SSL.
