Cryptographic Module Validation Program CMVP

Certificate #4147

Details

Module Name
Hewlett Packard Enterprise NSS Crypto Module
Standard
FIPS 140-2
Status
Historical
 Historical Reason
SP 800-56Arev3 transition
Overall Level
1
Caveat
When operated in FIPS mode. The module generates cryptographic keys whose strengths are modified by available entropy. This validation entry is a non-security relevant modification to Cert. #3616
Security Level Exceptions
  • Roles, Services, and Authentication: Level 2
  • Physical Security: N/A
  • Design Assurance: Level 3
Module Type
Software
Embodiment
Multi-Chip Stand Alone
Description
The Hewlett Packard Enterprise NSS Crypto Module is a general purpose cryptographic library designed to provide FIPS 140-2 validated cryptographic functionality for Hewlett Packard Enterprise components.
Tested Configuration(s)
  • Oracle Linux 7.6 64 bit running on an Oracle Server X7-2 with an Intel(R) Xeon(R) Silver 4114 with PAA
  • Oracle Linux 7.6 64 bit running on an Oracle Server X7-2 with an Intel(R) Xeon(R) Silver 4114 without PAA
  • Oracle Linux 7.6 64 bit running on an Oracle X7-2 Server with an AMD(R) EPYC(R) 7551 with PAA
  • Oracle Linux 7.6 64 bit running on an Oracle X7-2 Server with an AMD(R) EPYC(R) 7551 without PAA (single user mode)
