Standard
FIPS 140-2
Status
Active
Sunset Date
10/11/2021
Validation Dates
07/09/2018
Overall Level
1
Caveat
When operated in FIPS mode. The module generates cryptographic keys whose strengths are modified by available entropy. No assurance of the minimum strength of generated keys. This validation entry is a non-security relevant modification to Cert. #2768
Security Level Exceptions
  • Physical Security: N/A
  • Mitigation of Other Attacks: N/A
Module Type
Software
Embodiment
Multi-Chip Stand Alone
Description
HYCU Cryptographic Library is a software library that provides cryptographic services to HYCU Data Protection for Nutanix, the only purpose-built data protection solution, built from the ground up with the Nutanix administrator in mind. The module provides FIPS 140 validated cryptographic algorithms for multiple services such as TLS and File Encryption.
Tested Configuration(s)
