NSS FIPS 140 2009 validation

Softoken is a component of NSS, and has a separate version number. The version of softoken FIPS validated in 2009 is 3.12.4 and is in NSS 3.12.4 and NSS 3.12.5 and NSS 3.12.6. Binaries are available here.

April 2010 NSS Softoken has finished its validation NSS Certs.

The next NSS FIPS validation info is available at FIPS_Validation.
