Automated Security Diagnostic Testing: The CMVP has even added a section to its website to address its consideration.

If you provide default authentication data to initially access your product, ISO When we started Acumen a isso over two years back we wanted our work to have real world impact. Requiring the user to change these credentials will not only be necessary to validate against FIPS Next but is a good security practice.

Now is the time to add minimum complexity rules to your software.

There are, however, several requirements that could be considered not only because they will be required, but, they are also just good security practices. This will NOT 17990 the case moving forward. Compliance based testing and certification have received bad rap over the years as being checkbox security or even worse having no security impact.


However, the transition plan is not finalized the CMVP could potentially even go a completely different direction and it would not be prudent to completely overhaul code and design to meet the ISO requirements.

FIPS allows any password complexity requirement to be enforced procedurally.

[cabfpub] FIPS will be ISO/IEC

Not only will you be ie the new validation requirements, but, you may just identify and prevent a vulnerability from getting out into the field. Default credentials are one of the more common ways a system in operation is compromised. Did you know that, while your product may support Suite-B, not every implemented service may actually have the required support? What does it mean and what are you going to do?

Have you ever run into this scenario? Here at Acumen Security we are excited to begin our journey in the world of certification testing as an independent lab. In this respect our genesis of starting Acumen might well have been called Read More….

However, in doing a deep dive into the requirements, one finds that there are numerous changes that will directly affect every cryptographic module that has ever been validated.


For many vendors, it makes sense to consider getting a head start into integrating the new functionality required by ISP Here are a few suggestions a product vendor may wish to consider to get a head start on an ISO Acumen Security has performed a detailed analysis between the two standard and put together an easily consumable white paper providing a high-level description of the differences between FIPS and ISO At minimum, even if it does not become part of FIPS Next, you will prevent the dreaded one-character password.

If you are not already performing that type of testing, now is a good time to start.

This value is not only derived by the very real product improvements that are realized by certifying a Read More…. If vendors are caught off guard, it will be very painful to complete their next FIPS validation after the transition.

We truly believe in the value that certifications can bring to a product developer.
