Here at Acumen Security we are excited to begin our journey in the world of certification testing as an independent lab. Have you ever run into this scenario?

However, the transition plan is not finalized the CMVP could potentially even go a completely different direction and it would not be prudent to completely overhaul code and design to meet the ISO requirements. The CMVP has even added a section to its website to address its consideration.

There are, however, several requirements that could be considered not only because they will be required, but, they are also just good security practices. Default credentials are one of the more common ways a system in operation is compromised. For many vendors, it makes sense to consider getting a head start into integrating the new functionality required by ISP What does it ieo and what are you going to do?

FIPS allows any password complexity requirement to be enforced procedurally. Now is the time to add minimum complexity rules to your software. Not only will you be meeting the new validation requirements, but, you may just identify and prevent a vulnerability from getting out into the field. Automated Security Diagnostic Testing: When we started Acumen a little over two years back we wanted our work to have real world impact.

Did you know that, while your product may support Suite-B, not every implemented service may actually have the required support?

We truly believe in the value that certifications can bring to a product developer. Requiring the user to change these credentials will not only be necessary to validate against FIPS Next but is a good security practice.

[cabfpub] FIPS will be ISO/IEC

If you are not already performing that type of testing, now is a good time to start. Here ied a few suggestions a product vendor may wish to consider to get a head start on an ISO Compliance based testing and certification have received bad rap over the years as being checkbox security or even worse having no security impact.


This value is not only derived by the very real product improvements that are realized by certifying a Read More…. If you provide default authentication data to initially access your product, ISO This will NOT be the case moving forward. However, in doing a deep dive into the requirements, one finds that there are numerous changes that will directly affect every cryptographic module that has ever been validated.

At minimum, even if it does not become part of FIPS Next, you will prevent the dreaded one-character password. If vendors are caught off guard, it will be very painful to complete their next FIPS validation after the transition.

Acumen Security has performed a detailed analysis between ieo two standard and put together an easily ios white paper providing a high-level description of the differences between FIPS and ISO In this respect our genesis of starting Acumen might well have been called Read More….
