OpenSSL FIPS 140

It has been reported here and there that OpenSSL finally has its FIPS 140 certification. I haven’t actually seen the certificate, and seeing is believing. Nor has it shown up on NIST’s validation list.

But anyway, assuming its actually true, and people keep assuring me it is, its taken us three years to get to this point. Also, its the first validation of source rather than binary, so it is something of a landmark.

Good news, despite the tortuous processs and astonishing delays.
