Steve Taylor, Solution Architect/Technologist, Intel Federal. FIPS validation can be a challenge for security vendors, particularly for those vendors getting hardware modules or hybrid (hardware + firmware) modules validated. In 2016, Intel Corp. succeeded in getting a FIPS 140-2 Level 1 validation of their hardware TEE in their 6th and 7th Generation Core vPro line of processors and the firmware for this TEE. Steve Taylor, a Solution Architect for Intel since 2006, will discuss their companies challenges in successfully navigating the FIPS validation process for a hybrid crypto module at a large silicon manufacturing company.
