Squaring the Circle (U21d)

You embark on the exciting journey of building a brand spanking new security hardware device. You require Fips 140-2 certification before deploying your device to the market place, everyone needs Fips 140-2 certification you are told.

What happens now when you find that your new hardware device is really new and nothing similar has gone through the certification process before? Your product doesn’t quite fit into the existing hardware devices which have been certified.

In this talk I will discuss the steps taken, the steps avoided and the lessons learnt when going through the Fips 140-2 Level 3 certification process for our product.
