Description
The Cisco FIPS Object Module (FOM) is a firmware library that provides cryptographic services to a vast array of Cisco's networking and collaboration products. The module provides FIPS 140 validated cryptographic algorithms for services such as IPSEC, SRTP, SSH, TLS, 802.1x, etc. The module does not directly implement any of these protocols, instead it provides the cryptographic primitives and functions to allow a developer to implement the various protocols.
