FIPS-140 is a U.S. Government computer security standard for cryptography modules. To use the Cryptographic Framework in FIPS-140 (FIPS) mode, see How to Use the Cryptographic Framework in FIPS-140 Mode.
Note - The presence of this mode does not mean that you are operating in a FIPS-140 compliant matter. You must follow the NIST security policy for this implementation to be compliant. For the policy, click the Security Policy link in the Cryptographic Framework entry for Oracle on the Validated FIPS 140-1 and FIPS 140-2 Cryptographic Modules web site.
