vRealize Network Insight Cloud is pre-configured and hardened to use FIPS 140-2 validated cryptographic modules to run in FIPS compliant mode out of the box. The modules are validated to FIPS 140-2 standards by the NIST Cryptographic Module Validation Program (CMVP).
vRealize Network Insight Cloud usages the following validated modules:
|FIPS Object Module||Version||Certificate|
|VMware OpenSSL||1.0.2y||Certificate #3622|
|VMware's OpenSSL||2.0.20-vmw||Certificate #3875|
|BC-FJA (Bouncy Castle FIPS Java API)||version 220.127.116.11||Certificate #3673|
You can find more information about the cryptographic modules that VMware has validated against the FIPS 140-2 standard here: https://www.vmware.com/security/certifications/fips.html.
Configure FIPS compliant Mode for Internal Connections
In vRealize Network Insight Cloud, the FIPS compliant mode is activated by default for all internal communications.
Configure FIPS Compliance Mode for External Connections
For external communication with data sources such as switches, VMware vCenter, VMware NSX, and so on, configured on customer Collector, the FIPS compliant mode is deactivated.
To activate FIPS compliant mode for such external connections, do the following:
- Go to .
- Set the value for FIPS Mode For External Connections to Enable.
