Privilege Management for Unix and Linux FIPS 140-2 Compliance Statement


The Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) Publication 140-2 (FIPS 140-2) is a U.S. government computer security standard used to accredit cryptographic modules.

This document details the FIPS 140-2 approved third-party cryptographic modules used in BeyondTrust Privilege Management for Unix and Linux.

The compliance of Privilege Management for Unix and Linux with FIPS 140-2 is ensured by the use of exclusively FIPS 140-2 compliant, third party cryptographic algorithms, and using the algorithms as the only providers of cryptographic services as applicable for product operation.


Cryptographic algorithms are only used if High Security is enforced.
