System-wide cryptographic policies and FIPS (S23c)
The Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 brings a concept of system-wide cryptographic policies which allow easy selection of allowed cryptographic algorithms and protocols that apply to all the core cryptographic libraries and applications that use them.
This presentation will describe how the system-wide cryptographic policies are implemented and how they relate to the cryptographic modules present in the Red Hat Enterprise Linux. It will be also shown how the system-wide cryptographic policies help implementing the system-wide FIPS mode switch and the related improvement of user experience.
