Former US President, Ronald Reagan frequently used the Russian proverb “Trust, but verify”. This adage is also frequently used in the blockchain community. The idea is that some things are important enough that they must be verified.
The Cryptographic Module Validation Program (CMVP) is a joint effort between the US National Institute of Science and Technology (NIST) and the Canadian Communications Security Establishment (CSE). CMVP validates cryptographic modules to the Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 140-2 and other standards. FIPS 140-2 is a mandatory standard for the protection of US Government sensitive data.
As part of our ongoing commitment to government certifications, these devices are already in process for a recertification using Junos 17.4 and are listed on the CMVP Implementation Under Test (IUT) List.
