Acumen Security has performed a detailed analysis between the two standard and put together an easily consumable white paper providing a high-level description of the differences between FIPS and ISO Here are a few suggestions a product vendor may wish to consider to get a head start on an ISO However, the transition plan is not finalized the CMVP could potentially even go a completely different direction and it would not be prudent eic completely overhaul code and design to meet the ISO requirements.

[cabfpub] FIPS 140-3 will be ISO/IEC 19790

Did you know that, while your product may support Suite-B, not every implemented service may actually have the required support? If you provide default authentication data to initially access your product, ISO 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 Have you ever run into this scenario? There are, however, several requirements that could be considered not only because they will be required, but, they are also just good security practices.

This will NOT be the case moving forward.

If vendors are caught off guard, it will be very painful to complete their next FIPS validation after the transition. This value is not only derived by the very real product improvements that are realized by certifying a Read More…. Automated Security Diagnostic Testing: 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.

Here at Acumen Security we are excited to begin our journey in the world of certification testing as an independent lab. Now is the ido to add minimum complexity rules to your software. The CMVP has even added a section to its website to address its consideration. What does it mean and what are you going to do?


However, in doing a deep dive into the requirements, one finds that there are numerous changes that will 1790 affect every cryptographic module that has ever been validated.

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.

Getting ready for an ISO based FIPS Next – Certifications Expert

At minimum, even if it does not become part of FIPS Next, you will prevent the dreaded one-character password. FIPS allows any password complexity requirement to be enforced procedurally.

Compliance based testing and certification have received bad rap over the years as being checkbox security or jso worse having no security impact. When we started Acumen a little over two years back we wanted our work to have real world impact.

In this respect our genesis of starting Acumen might well have been called Read More….

If you are not already performing that type of testing, now is a good time to start.
