Re: [Free] FIPS 140-2 Security Free!

Even TrueCrypt is not FIPS 140-2 certified for that matter...

The FIPS 140-2 version is for US Government only.
U have to fill out this form and send to them if ur a Government contractor. I even emailed them if they can provide me with the FIPS 140-2 version for non Government use. Still waiting for a feedback. But I really doubt that I will be approved for this request.

However, I have the full set ISO image live CD from them based on Linux. Its awesome!!!!! And its probably approved by the USAF/DoD/DISA. The Encryption thing is already added on there but without FIPS 140-2. You can do more things with this like online banking and stuff like that. Also includes a secured version of Firefox based on the DISA Security Complaince Standards.



Just an update on the feedback I got from one of the Team support members:

I guess it was worth a try. But I dont think the Public version uses FIPS 140-2. And even TrueCrypt does not either...

"Unfortunately due to licensing restrictions in order to reduce costs,
EW-Govt with the FIPS 140-2 library is only available to US Federal
Government employees and their contractors."
