iDENtear is undertaking FIPS 140-2 level 3 certification and has reached the ‘Implementation under Test’ (IUT) status, or FIPS Pending. We are committed to ensuring iDENtear is recognised as the most secure and easy to use authentication device in available today. Details of FIPS 140-2 can be found below.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (…NIST) established the Cryptographic Module Validation Program (CMVP) that validates cryptographic modules to Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS)140-2 Security Requirements for Cryptographic Modules, and other FIPS cryptography based standards. Modules validated as conforming to FIPS 140-2 are accepted for the protection of sensitive information.
Vendors of cryptographic modules use independent, accredited Cryptographic and Security Testing (CST) laboratories to test their modules. The CST laboratories use the Derived Test Requirements (DTR), Implementation Guidance (IG) and applicable CMVP programmatic guidance to test cryptographic modules against the applicable standards. Apply Mobile selected Infogard (www.infogard.com), as our CST Laboratory. NIST’s Computer Security Division and CSEC jointly serve as the Validation Authorities for the program, validating the test results and issuing certificates.
