Description

https://jira.suse.com/browse/SLE-21214

Prepare Kernel module for certification process under FIPS 140-3 standards. Make all code changes necessary, in Kernel, to comply with FIPS 140-3 standards to pass the validation process of NIST and obtain the FIPS certificate for the module.

Confirmed platforms:

x86_64 intel
x86_64 AMD
aarch64
s390x zX (exact platform not yet specify) 

Platforms under evaluation, pending for confirmation:

IBM Power 9/10

Algorithms:

7 algorithms:

AES
SHS
HMAC
DRBG
key wrapping (NIST SP800-38F / RFC3394
RSA
SP800-90B ENT

*Note that we identified 8 algorithms at the beginning, including Triple-DES, however we decided to not include it due to its sunset in 2022.

Standards:

The standards to follow are the FIPS 140-3. See:
