[sle][security][sle15sp4][feature][manual] SLE-21214 - QA: FIPS 140-3: make Kernel module ready for certification process
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.
x86_64 intel x86_64 AMD aarch64 s390x zX (exact platform not yet specify)
Platforms under evaluation, pending for confirmation:
IBM Power 9/10
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.
The standards to follow are the FIPS 140-3. See:
