Secure Remote Access FIPS 140-2 Compliance Statement


When you need to protect Sensitive but Unclassified data with cryptography, you want to use a cryptographic module that meets the federal government (US and Canada) security standard FIPS 140-2, so that you can trust that the module is tested and validated by independent authorities. Products validated as conforming to FIPS 140-2 are accepted by the Federal agencies of both countries for the protection of sensitive information (United States) or protected information (Canada).


The Federal Information Processing Standards Publication 140-2 or FIPS, specifies the security requirements that will be satisfied by a cryptographic module, providing four increasing, qualitative levels intended to cover a wide range of potential applications and environments. The areas covered, related to the secure design and implementation of a cryptographic module, include specification; ports and interfaces; roles, services, and authentication; finite state model; physical security; operational environment; cryptographic key management; electromagnetic interference/electromagnetic compatibility (EMI/EMC); self-tests; design assurance; and mitigation of other attacks.

This document details the FIPS 140-2 approved third-party cryptographic modules, which are the only modules used in BeyondTrust Appliance B Series. The compliance of Secure Remote Access (both Remote Support and Privileged Remote Access) 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.

FIPS Mode enforces that no changes can be made to the cryptographic algorithms for FIPS-certified deployments.
