"The presentation will start with a short introduction to the FIPS 140-2 US government standard, the reasons why it exists and what are the high level implications it has on the FIPS validated cryptography modules. It will also shortly describe what is the work done by Red Hat as the vendor of multiple FIPS validated modules to be able to obtain the FIPS validation.
The main focus of the presentation will be on developers that wish to use cryptography in applications for various reasons - encryption of data, protection of its integrity through message digests and signatures, secure communication via TLS. In this part it will be shown what are the most important things to follow to be able to claim that the cryptography-using application is FIPS compliant."
