What is FIPS?
FIPS (Federal Information Processing Standards) is a US & Canadian certification which recognises AES compliant devices so they can be utilised by Federal agencies or departments for the purpose of protecting sensitive data.
The Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) specifies a FIPS-approved cryptographic algorithm that can be used to protect electronic data. The AES algorithm is a symmetric block cipher that can encrypt (encipher) and decrypt (decipher) information. Encryption converts data to an unintelligible form called ciphertext; decrypting the ciphertext converts the data back into its original form, called plaintext. The AES algorithm is capable of using cryptographic keys of 128, 192, and 256 bits to encrypt and decrypt data in blocks of 128 bits.
FIPS Hardware Certified
Data Locker Pro AES 128 Bit contains the Enova chipset. The the AES algorithm which allows the encryption and decryption of data has met the FIPS-197 standard.
