Update on the New OpenSSL FIPS Module Development Project (S22a)
The OpenSSL 1.0.2 distribution that supports a FIPS 140-2 validated module will not be supported by the OpenSSL Management Committee past 2019. A new FIPS 140 module that supports TLS 1.3 is required by the Open Source community in order to sell into the US and Canadian Federal Governments. The OpenSSL community sponsors along with the OpenSSL Management Committee have been working on developing a new FIPS 140 Module from scratch that is completely different than the existing module and will be integrated into the new OpenSSL distributions. This presentation will provide an update on the new OpenSSL FIPS Module development project.
