XYPRO Technology’s XYGATE/ESDK Achieves NIST Validation for FIPS 140-2 Government Standard

Wednesday, May 18th, 2011

Simi Valley, California, USA – May 18, 2011 – XYPRO Technology Corporation, a leading provider of security software and services for HP NonStop server environments, today announced the XYGATE Encryption Library (XEL)  module XYGATE/ESDK achieved Federal Information Processing Standards Publications (FIPS) 140-2 Validation: Security Requirements for Cryptographic Modules.

FIPS 140-2 validation is mandatory for any cryptographic product that is used in a U.S. government agency network.  The standard is a joint effort by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in the United States, and the Communications Security Establishment Canada (CSEC), under the Canadian government. The Cryptographic Module Validation Program (CMVP), headed by NIST, provides module and algorithm testing for FIPS 140-2, which applies to Federal agencies using validated cryptographic modules to protect sensitive government data in computer and telecommunication systems. FIPS 140-2 provides stringent third-party assurance of security claims on any product containing cryptography that may be purchased by a government agency.

To expedite the FIPS 140-2 validation process, XYPRO partnered with Corsec Security, Inc., a consulting firm with over 13 years of validation experience.  “Corsec is delighted to work with XYPRO on their latest FIPS 140-2 validation,” said Matthew Appler, CEO of Corsec. “The FIPS 140-2 process is very detailed and time consuming and only well designed products can make it through validation.  This clearly demonstrates XYPRO’s devotion to provide its customers with a higher level of security assurance.”

“Over the past several years, XYPRO has expanded the number of platforms on which we received FIPS validation for our encryption library,” said Lisa Partridge, XYPRO President.  “This most recent validation is a testament to our unwavering commitment to security and compliance. FIPS 140-2 validation of the XEL  XYGATE/ ESDK demonstrates XYPRO’s determination to continue providing customers with a secure and dependable solution.”

The FIPS standard, which is mandated by law in the U.S. and strictly enforced in Canada, is also being reviewed by ISO to become an international standard. FIPS 140-2 is gaining worldwide recognition as an important benchmark for third party validations of encryption products of all kinds.
