Cryptographic Module Validation Program CMVP

Certificate #3022


Module Name
Aruba AP-214, AP-215, AP-274, AP-275, AP-277 and AP-228 Wireless Access Points
FIPS 140-2
 Historical Reason
SP 800-56Arev3 transition
Overall Level
When operated in FIPS mode with tamper evident labels installed as indicated in the Security Policy
Security Level Exceptions
  • Mitigation of Other Attacks: N/A
Module Type
Multi-Chip Stand Alone
Aruba's 802.11ac Wi-Fi access points operate at gigabit speeds, offering extreme performance for mobile devices. In FIPS 140-2 mode, Aruba APs in conjunction with a Mobility Controller support the IEEE 802.11i/WPA2 client standard along with optional Suite B cryptography. Aruba APs also support wireless intrusion detection/prevention services and wireless mesh topologies.
