Is AWS FIPS-compliant?

4 min read

AWS Cloud Map now offers Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 140-2 compliant endpoints in the US and Canada commercial Regions to help you protect sensitive information.

How do you know if something is FIPS compliant?

How Can I See is a Product is FIPS Validated? All FIPS-validated modules are on the NIST site. You can run a basic or advanced search or just search the vendor of the product you’re using. A list will pop up with the certificate number, vendor name, module name, module type, and the validation date.

Is AWS CloudHSM PCI compliant?

PCI DSS Compliance

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a proprietary information security standard administered by the PCI Security Standards Council . The HSMs provided by AWS CloudHSM comply with PCI DSS.

Is Google FIPS compliant?

Google Cloud Platform uses a FIPS 140-2 validated encryption module called BoringCrypto (certificate 3318) in our production environment. This means that both data in transit to the customer and between data centers, and data at rest are encrypted using FIPS 140-2 validated encryption.

Who needs to comply with FIPS?

Anyone deploying systems into a U.S. federal SBU environment – and this includes cloud services – are required to comply with FIPS 140-2 certification.

Is SSL FIPS compliant?

FIPS-enabled computers can only connect to websites with FIPS-compliant ciphers for SSL/TLS (Secure Sockets Layer/Transport Layer Security). For a Web server to be compliant, it must use at least one cipher SSL/TLS mechanism for signing, hashing, and encryption. This is often one or another version of 3DES.

Is AES 256 FIPS compliant?

AES encryption is compliant with FIPS 140-2. It’s a symmetric encryption algorithm that uses cryptographic key lengths of 128, 192, and 256 bits to encrypt and decrypt a module’s sensitive information. AES algorithms are notoriously difficult to crack, with longer key lengths offering additional protection.

Is AWS S3 PCI compliant?

Yes, Amazon Web Services (AWS) is certified as a PCI DSS Level 1 Service Provider, the highest level of assessment available.

Is S3 PCI compliance?

The security and compliance of Amazon S3 is assessed by third-party auditors as part of multiple AWS compliance programs, including the following: System and Organization Controls (SOC) Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS)


AWS KMS uses hardware security modules (HSMs) that have been validated under FIPS 140-2, or are in the process of being validated, to protect the confidentiality and integrity of your keys.

What is the difference between FIPS and NIST?

FIPS are standards and guidelines for federal computer systems that are developed by National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in accordance with the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) and approved by the Secretary of Commerce.

What are the 4 levels of FIPS?

FIPS 140-2 has 4 levels of security, with level 1 being the least secure, and level 4 being the most secure: FIPS 140-2 Level 1- Level 1 has the simplest requirements. It requires production-grade equipment, and atleast one tested encryption algorithm.

Is OpenSSL FIPS compliant?

The 2.0 FIPS module is compatible with OpenSSL releases 1.0. 1 and 1.0.

Is OpenSSL 3.0 FIPS compliant?

Following on from the recent announcement that OpenSSL 3.0 has been released, we have now also submitted our FIPS 140-2 validation report to NIST’s Cryptographic Module Validation Program (CMVP).

What is OpenSSL FIPS mode?

FIPS mode()

From OpenSSLWiki. The FIPS_mode() function is used to determine the current FIPS 140-2 mode of operation by a program utilizing the services of the validated library.

How do I enable FIPS mode in OpenSSL?

Verify FIPS-capable OpenSSL

Note, however, that the openssl application does NOT use FIPS mode by default. To use FIPS mode, you must define the environment variable OPENSSL_FIPS. The following fragment shows the differences when enabling TIPS mode: In a non-FIPS-capable OpenSSL, an error is shown.

What is OpenSSL FIPS Object Module?

The OpenSSL FIPS Object Module 2.0 is a general purpose cryptographic module delivered as open source code. It is designed for ease of use with the popular OpenSSL cryptographic library and toolkit and is available for use without charge for a wide variety of platforms.

What does FIPS mode do?

FIPS (Federal Information Processing Standards) are a set of standards that describe document processing, encryption algorithms and other information technology standards for use within U.S. non-military government agencies and by U.S. government contractors and vendors who work with the agencies.
