Certificate #3532


Module Name
FortiGate-VM Virtual Appliances
FIPS 140-2
 Historical Reason
SP 800-56Arev3 transition
Overall Level
When operated in FIPS mode and configured according to the Entropy Token Section of the Security Policy. There is no assurance of the minimum strength of generated keys
Security Level Exceptions
  • Cryptographic Module Ports and Interfaces: Level 3
  • Roles, Services, and Authentication: Level 3
  • Physical Security: N/A
  • Design Assurance: Level 3
Module Type
Multi-Chip Stand Alone
The FortiGate-VM appliances are software modules designed to execute on a General Purpose Computer (GPC) hardware platform running the VMware hypervisor and FortiOS 5.4. The FortiOS provides integrated firewall, VPN, antivirus, antispam, intrusion prevention, content filtering and traffic shaping and HA capabilities.
Tested Configuration(s)
  • FortiGate-VM on FortiHypervisor v1.1.0,build 0129 (single-user mode) running on FortiHypervisor-500D with Intel Xeon E3 processor with the Fortinet entropy token (part number FTR-ENT-1 or FTR-ENT-2)
