Cryptographic Module Validation Program CMVP

Certificate #4416


Module Name
BC-FNA (Bouncy Castle FIPS .NET API)
FIPS 140-2
Sunset Date
Overall Level
When operated in FIPS mode. No assurance of the minimum strength of generated keys.
Security Level Exceptions
  • Physical Security: N/A
Module Type
Multi-Chip Stand Alone
The Bouncy Castle FIPS .NET API is a comprehensive suite of FIPS Approved algorithms implemented in pure C#. All key sizes and modes have been implemented to allow flexibility and efficiency, and additional algorithms, including some post-quantum ones, are available in non-approved operation as well.
