To verify if the installation is running in FIPS-140 mode, run the following command in the dmctl mode:

get SM_System::SM-System::FIPS

The value for this parameter must be TRUE.

You can also check for the status of FIPS 140 in the log files in the BASEDIR/smarts/local/logs directory. When the Broker and server start in FIPS 140 mode, a message similar to the following one is written to the Broker and server log files:

RSA BSAFE: MES 3.2.4 26-May-2012/64(0), FIPS: RSA BSAFE Crypto-C Micro Edition FIPS 140-2 Module, May 31 2008 13:19:56
