Cryptographic Module Validation Program CMVP

Certificate #3229


Module Name
REDCOM Encryption 140-2
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. No assurance of the minimum strength of generated keys. This validation entry is a non-security relevant modification to Cert. #3080.
Security Level Exceptions
  • Physical Security: N/A
Module Type
Multi-Chip Stand Alone
REDCOM Encryption 140-2 is a FIPS 140-2 validated cryptographic engine for Java and Android based environments. The engine delivers core cryptographic functions including Suite B algorithms. Also, it offloads functions for secure key management, data integrity, data at rest encryption, and secure communications to a trusted implementation.
Tested Configuration(s)
  • Android 7.0 on a Samsung Galaxy S8 (single-user mode)
  • Tested as meeting Level 1 Android 6.0 on a Samsung Galaxy S7 edge
