Symantec Security Information Manager FIPS 140-2 Operational Mode Guide

Applies to: SSIM 4.7.3 and later versions, and Symantec Event Agent 4.7.1 and later versions.

The objective of this document is to describe in detail how the Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) operational mode is achieved for SSIM.

 

SSIM 4.7.3 adds to the ability for the product to run in a FIPS operational mode.  Information Manager components use cryptographic services such as SSL
communication and digital signatures from one or more cryptographic provider modules. To achieve FIPS operational mode, these components are configured to use a cryptographic provider that is either validated for FIPS 140-2 Level 1, or is in the FIPS 140-2 Level 1 validation process.
