Description
Microsoft Corporation’s Windows Server 2003 Kernel Mode Cryptographic Module (FIPS.SYS) is a FIPS 140-2 Level 1 compliant, general-purpose, software-based, cryptographic module residing at the Kernel Mode level of the Windows Operating System. It runs as a kernel mode export driver (a kernel-mode DLL) and encapsulates several different cryptographic algorithms in an easy-to-use cryptographic module accessible by other kernel mode drivers. It can be linked into other kernel mode services to permit the use of FIPS 140-2 Level 1 compliant cryptography.
Tested Configuration(s)
  • Windows Server 2003 (x86) [1] and Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1 (x86, x64, and IA64) [2] (single user mode)
