Out-of-the-Box FIPS Validation

With Allegro Software, get your FIPS IoT Devices validated quickly and stop investing in lengthy software development.

Allegro’s FIPS Validated Cryptography solution confers IoT technologies with embedded trust – without the need for specialized and high-priced programming expertise and validation testing. This dramatically reduces product development costs and time to market.

The Allegro Cryptography Engine (ACE) is a platform independent, high performance, resource sensitive, embedded FIPS 140-2/140-3 Validated cryptography engine superficially engineered on the rigors of embedded computing.

ACE enables OEM manufacturers to add sophisticated FIPS approved encryption technology to their designs to dramatically speed their development cycles. The ACE cryptography library is designed specifically from the ground up to meet the stringent requirements of FIPS 140-2/140-3 validation.

FIPS Validation Use Cases

Our FIPS Validation Software can be applied to any application across many industries.

Medical

Stryker

Connected Hospital Bed

To qualify for the VA medical market, Stryker’s connected hospital bed had to be FIPS validated. Stryker used Allegro’s ACE Software Cryptography module, TSL, and XML/JSON products.

Project Details  

  • ACE FIPS 140-2 validation
  • Secure TLS communications
  • XML/JSON integration
  • ROI 300%+ over in-house development and maintenance
  • Decreased time to deployment

Why Is FIPS Compliance Important?

Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 140-3 were established by government agencies to provide assurance that the cryptography did what it is designed to do – render data useless if IoT systems were breached.

To obtain FIPS 140-3 validation, a cryptography library (source code or binary) is submitted to an independent lab (e.g. AES, Shaw, Blowfish) for inspection and repeated testing. If the cryptography meets the stringent test requirements, a “quality stamp” is issued.

Test reports are then validated by NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology), who issues a certificate. This certification is required for products marketed to federal, state, and local government entities.

FIPS 140-3 validation is common for desktop and enterprise environments, but not for IoT applications due primarily to a lack of resources and expertise. Without FIPS validated cryptology, these applications are susceptible to serious data breaches.

Allegro Cryptography Engine ACE

Open source cryptography offerings do not solve this problem as they are not normally developed for IoT environments. Most software in the open-source domain has not been validated by an independent testing lab for FIPS compliance.
