The Federal Information Processing Standard Publication 140-2 (FIPS 140-2) is a U.S. government computer security standard used to approve cryptographic modules.
This Knowledge Base article provides a survey of Appdome’s FIPS functionality and explains how to add FIPS 140-2 Cryptographic modules to any mobile app – instantly, without coding.
We hope you find it useful and enjoy using Appdome!
Adding FIPS 140-2 Cryptographic Modules is part of the Appdome Mobile Security Suite. You can find it under TOTALDataTM Encryption. Appdome uses the FIPS 140-2 certified versions of the commercially available encryption libraries. These libraries (OpenSSL’s libcrypto and libssl) have themselves undergone FIPS certification.
Appdome is a mobile integration platform as a service (iPaaS) that allows users to add a wide variety of features, SDKs, and APIs to Android and iOS apps. Using a simple ‘click to add’ user interface, Appdome allows anyone to easily implement FIPS 140-2 Compliant Cryptographic Modules to any mobile app – instantly, no code or coding required.
In order to use Appdome’s no code implementation of FIPS 140-2 on Appdome, you’ll need:
Follow these step-by-step instructions to enable FIPS 140-2 compliance.
Note: the FIPS 140-2 Cryptographic Modules toggle, also appears under Secure Communication, when Trusted Session is enabled:
The following Appdome features make use of FIPS 140-2 compliant cryptography:
X509_verify_cert). In addition, only FIPS 140-2 compliant encryption and hash algorithms will be used in the said handshake.
After you have enabled FIPS 140-2 compliance, there are a few additional steps needed to complete your mobile integration project. Read this Knowledge Base article to learn what to do after you successfully Fuse an app. It explains both optional steps and required steps.
That is it – Enjoy Appdome with FIPS 140-2 enabled in your app!
