Would FIPS provide encryption at rest for data or at the move?

Would FIPS provide encryption at rest for data or at the move?

 

Is there an explanation about how it functions with SF?

 

 

Kindly

    Hi Wasfi,

     

    I would encourage you to get the full FIPS Administrators Guide (no HTML link due to RiOS version dependent) from the Riverbed Support site, as it covers everything around FIPS and Riverbed as you would expect.  As an example below;

     

    The following features use FIPS-compliant cryptography:

    • Web interface (Apache web server)
    • Delta software upgrade
    • Local user passwords and local authentication using SHA256-based or SHA512-based hash
    • Image integrity checks for RiOS
    • File transfers
    • NTP with SHA authentication
    • Secure peering
    • Secure vault
    • SNMP except if SNMP user passwords are configured with MD5 or DES protocols
    • SSH with approved ciphers
    • SSL optimization
    • SteelFusion block store with AES encryption

     

    Perhaps most importantly there are also areas where FIPS is NOT employed, hence reading the full FIPS Administration Guide is encouraged. 

     

    Tom.
