KB-9061: Are Centrify CPS On-Prem and its connectors able to use FIPS 140-2 validated cryptographic modules?

Centrify Privilege Service ,  

16 August,17 at 11:00 PM

Applies to: All versions of Centrify CPS on-premises and connectors.


Question
Are Centrify CPS on-premises and its connectors able to use FIPS 140-2 validated cryptographic modules?:


Answer:

The CPS application server and its connectors do in fact, use the .NET library for crypto.

Both are tested and validated by QA on Windows Server 2012 R2 instances running in FIPS 140-2 compliant mode.

If the CPS server and the connector(s) are running on 2012 R2 instances configured for FIPS 140-2, we are a fully FIPS 140-2 compliant solution,
i.e. the crypto libraries used by CPS and the connectors will be constrained to FIPS 140-2 mode.

Please note that you should not change the FIPS configuration after installing CPS on-premises. Set the FIPS configuration mode first, then install.
