Description
The Bouncy Castle FIPS Java API is a comprehensive suite of FIPS Approved algorithms implemented in pure Java. All key sizes and modes have been implemented to allow flexibility and efficiency, and additional algorithms are available in non-approved operation as well.
Tested Configuration(s)
  • Centos 6.4 with on Java SE Runtime Environment v8 (1.8.0) on vSphere 6 running on a Cisco UCSB-B200-M4 Blade with an Intel® Xeon® E5
  • Solaris 11 with on Java SE Runtime Environment v7 (1.7.0) on vSphere 6 running on a Cisco UCSB-B200-M4 Blade with an Intel® Xeon® E5
  • Ubuntu 14.04 LTS on Java SE Runtime Environment v8 (1.8.0) on VMWare ESXi 6.0 running on Simplivity OmniCube with an Intel® Xeon® E5 (single-user mode)
