Acumen Security has performed a detailed analysis isk the two standard and put together an easily consumable white paper providing a high-level description of the differences between FIPS and ISO Automated Security Diagnostic Testing: We truly believe in the value that certifications can bring to a product developer. This will NOT be the case moving forward.

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


If vendors are caught off guard, it will be very painful to complete their next FIPS validation after the transition. Here are a few suggestions a product vendor may wish to consider to get a head start on an ISO When we started Acumen a little over two years back kso wanted our work to have real world impact. For many vendors, it makes sense to consider getting a head start into integrating the new functionality required by ISP Requiring the user to change these credentials will not only be necessary to validate against FIPS Next but is a good security practice.

If you are not already performing that type of testing, now is ic good time to start. FIPS allows any password complexity requirement to be enforced procedurally.

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

At minimum, even if it does not become part of FIPS Next, you will prevent the dreaded one-character password. 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 1790 code and design to meet the ISO requirements. Default credentials are one of the more common ways a system in operation is compromised.


Have you ever run into this scenario? The CMVP has even added a section to its website to address its consideration. Compliance based testing and certification have received bad rap over the years as being checkbox security or even worse having no security impact.

In this respect our genesis of starting Acumen might well have been called Read Ido. Now is the time to add minimum complexity rules to your software.

Here at Acumen Security we are excited to begin our journey in the world of certification testing as an independent lab. Eic does it mean and what are you going to do? This value is not only derived by the very real product improvements that are realized by certifying a Read More….

1790 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.
