BDS in FIPS 140-2 in CMVP certification process
Biscom Delivery Server is now “in process” for FIPS 140-2 certification. FIPS 140-2 (Federal Information Processing Standard) certification is a US Government security standard for accrediting cryptographic modules. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) defines the cryptography requirements in its FIPS 140-2 publication, and software like BDS must pass the Cryptographic Module Validation Program (CMVP) in order to receive certification. Level 1 is geared towards software solutions, whereas level 2 is required for hardware solutions that have physical security mechanisms.
