True to enable the FIPS-compliant cryptographic modules in your IDOL components.
IDOL uses a cryptographic module which complies with Federal Information Processing Standard 140-2 (FIPS 140-2). This standard defines the technical requirements that Federal Agencies must use for cryptographic-based security systems that protect sensitive or valuable data.
When you use SSL in FIPS mode, all encrypted ACI communication between all IDOL components and HTTPS traffic between IDOL and third parties (where SSL is supported by the third party) is secured using the FIPS validated OpenSSL Module.
FIPS mode is available only on FIPS-enabled Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 platforms. You must download and install the FIPS-enabled components.
For more information about how to set up and enable FIPS Mode, refer to the IDOL FIPS Enablement Technical Note.
