Horizon 7 can perform cryptographic operations using FIPS (Federal Information Processing Standard) 140-2 compliant algorithms. You can enable the use of these algorithms by installing Horizon 7 in FIPS mode.
Not all Horizon 7 features are supported in FIPS mode. Also, Horizon 7 does not support upgrading from a non-FIPS installation to a FIPS installation.
To ensure that Horizon 7 runs in FIPS mode, you must enable FIPS when you install all Horizon 7 components.
