XenMobile FIPS 140 Compliance

Oct 03, 2013

The Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS), issued by the US National Institute of Standards and Technologies, specifies the security requirements for a cryptographic module used in a security system. The MDX Toolkit technology complies with the second version of this standard, FIPS-140-2. All references to FIPS imply FIPS-140-2.

Citrix MDX Vault components and the associated MDX Toolkit is used for securing container-based data-at-rest on mobile devices. Both components leverage existing NIST Validated Cryptographic Modules from OpenSSL (Cert#1747) to achieve FIPS compliance. For more information regarding the NIST validated FIPS modules, see the National Institute of Standards and Technology web site.
