What FIPS License exactly does?

As far i understand it is nothing you actually configure

You pay for the license and well you download the fips version of the firmware... and well there you got... a firmware that comply with fips, which wont let you configure for example you wont be able to use tkip, wep or stuff like that....
iam correct? But its nothign actuallly you have to configure or do anything right?

 

Cheers

Carlos

You can find documents in the Documentation section under the Aruba OS (FIPS) directory on the support site which states what is the available ciphers and other features in the FIPS version - it may help to get to know the differencies.
