How To Verify FIPS Mode Is Enabled On Airwave
How to verify FIPS mode is enabled on Airwave?
We have the option to enable FIPS mode from AMPCLI menu. Select "Security" which is option 9, then from Security list, Select option 5 to enable FIPS. Also, enabling FIPS will require a reboot.
Once FIPS is enabled, we can run the below command to confirm FIPS mode is enabled.
# cat /proc/sys/crypto/fips_enabled
If the command returns value “1” in the output, then FIPS mode is enabled. Below screenshot is the output from an Airwave Server where FIPS mode is enabled
If the command returns value "0" in the output, then FIPS mode is not enabled
