The cryptographic module supporting encryption of data at rest must be FIPS 140-2 validated.


Finding ID Version Rule ID IA Controls Severity
V-32707 WIR-MOS-iOS-65-09 SV-43053r1_rule DCNR-1 Medium
The most common vulnerabilities with cryptographic modules are those associated with poor implementation. FIPS 140 validation provides assurance that the relevant cryptography has been implemented correctly. FIPS validation is also a strict requirement for use of cryptography in the Federal Government.

Check Text ( C-41070r1_chk )
Review system documentation to identify the FIPS 140 certificate for the cryptographic module. Visit the NIST web site http://csrc.nist.gov/groups/STM/cmvp/documents/140-1/140val-all.htm to verify the certificate is still valid. If the module is not currently FIPS validated, this is a finding.
Fix Text (F-36605r1_fix)
Stop using the operating system until the vendor has obtained FIPS validation or install a third party product that contains a FIPS validated cryptographic module providing the same services in the operating system’s non-FIPS validated implementation of cryptography.
