Junos 14.1 FIPS 140-2 Certification is Most Comprehensive Certification Yet

Junos 14.1 FIPS 140-2 Certification is Most Comprehensive Certification Yet

I am pleased to report that the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has issued a Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2 Certification of the following Juniper Networks devices with Junos 14.1R4 software.

 

EX9204, EX9208, EX9216

M7i, M10i, M120, M320

MX240, MX480, MX960, MX2010, MX2020

PTX3000, PTX5000

T640, T1600, T4000

 

The FIPS certification is #2451.

 

This is a first time FIPS certification for the EX9200 and the PTX devices and a recertification for the M, MX, and T-series devices.  This is Juniper Network’s 56th FIPS certification and this is the most comprehensive single FIPS certification completed to date.

 

FIPS Certification continues to be challenging as NIST requirements evolve including the deprecation of cryptographic algorithms that were once approved and increased focus on important cryptography elements like maintaining sufficient entropy and using strong deterministic random bit generators (DRBG).
