Description

https://jira.suse.com/browse/SLE-21220

Prepare Libgcrypt module for certification process under FIPS 140-3 standards. Make all code changes necessary, in Libgcrypt, 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

Platforms under evaluation, pending for confirmation:

s390x z15
IBM Power 9/10

Algorithms:

7 algorithms:

AES
SHS
RSA
DSA
HMAC
DRBG
ECDSA

*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:
