Enabling FIPS mode via Command Line 9.6
Hello there! We are having an issue with our PGP command line v9.6. I do not believe it is related to the version as 9.6 has the same capability in this as later versions (10x, etc).
We are attempting to enable FIPS for file encryption. If I view the pgp --version --verbose, under the PGPSDK section, it tells me that FIPS mode is disabled. By reviewing documentation, it tells me that I can turn on FIPS mode during the command line. However, when I type this command:
pgp --encrypt readme.txt --r <keyid> --fips-mode --verbose
It just returns to the commnd prompt, with no result, the encryption does not happen, and there are no messages printed to STDOUT. If I omit the fips-mode option (or fips option; there is difference in the result), the encryption happens normally.
In addition, if I set the environment variable PGP_FIPS_MODE=True, PGP no long does anything, not even a pgp --L or PGP --version
This happens with both RSA4 keys and DSS keys. I am not sure if I would need a different algorithm to make this work or not.
Any ideas? Thank you! :)
