NSS FIPS 140 validation

Softoken is a component of NSS, and has a separate version number. The most recent FIPS validated Softoken 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.

NSS softoken has completed FIPS 140 validation four times: 1997, 1999, 2002, 2007 and 2009. View | NSS FIPS validation history here. View the FIPS2009 validation here.

This page documents our current NSS FIPS 140 validation.

Platforms for 2011

  • Level 1
    • RHEL 6 x86 32 bit (no AES-NI)
    • RHEL 6 x86 64 bit

Algorithms

Plan is to validate all FIPS-approved algorithms that NSS implements and NIST has tests for. There are eight such algorithms.

Algorithms Key Size Modes Certificates

TECB(e/d; KO 1,2,3)
TCBC(e/d; KO 1,2,3)

Pending

AES 128/192/256

ECB(e/d; 128,192,256)
