What does it mean to activate FIPS in opions / advance tab?
While playing around with PGP, trying to figure out how to fix all these many many problems I have been having, I can across a control that I do not understand.
When I press Tools then Options, and click the Advance Tab, I see an option to "Activate FIPS 140-2 operational and integrity checks." What does this do? I know what FIPS-2 is, but since I do not have a Self Encrypting Hard drive (just a regular one), will this do anything for me? I'd like to have as much security as possible, so I am hoping that this will add to things.
