You can configure WS_FTP Server to run in FIPS-validated mode.
FIPS (Federal Information Processing Standard) is a standard published by the U. S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), a non-regulatory agency of the U. S. Department of Commerce. NIST works to establish various standards that the U.S. military and various government agencies must abide by. Therefore, vendors, contractors, and any organization working with the government and military must also comply with these standards where they are required. Additionally, despite the fact that FIPS is a U.S.-developed standard, the Canadian government has similar policies requiring FIPS-validated software.
WS_FTP Server FIPS mode includes Triple DES, AES, and HMAC SHA-1. Other modes of encryption are not supported, as specified by FIPS 140-2.
To configure WS_FTP Server to run in FIPS-validated mode:
After restart, FIPS-validated mode will be activated.
Note:With FIPS mode activated, non-FIPS connections will still be allowed, unless other connection modes are turned off. To restrict WS_FTP Server to FIPS-validated connections, you need to change the settings as described in the following procedure.
