Re: [Samba] Is samba FIPS compliant ? Can it be build with openssl ?




Thanks for the quick reply Jeremy. 

We have other FIPS compliant libraries, which check for, and ensure the proper FIPS compliant algorithms are used. Is  there a link option to specify this kind of library ?

FIPS certification is expensive and time-consuming, and no Open Source project that I know of has ever complied.

Having said that, individual vendors have gotten FIPS certification for specific versions of their product, Red Hat being one. As Red Hat ships by default with Samba, I think we're probably *able* to be FIPS certifiable, but you're going to have to do the actual FIPS certification work yourself :-).
