About MSDP FIPS compliance
The Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) define U.S. and Canadian Government security and interoperability requirements for computer systems. The FIPS 140-2 standard specifies the security requirements for cryptographic modules. It describes the approved security functions for symmetric and asymmetric key encryption, message authentication, and hashing.
For more information about the FIPS 140-2 standard and its validation program, see the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the Communications Security Establishment Canada (CSEC) Cryptographic Module Validation Program website at https://csrc.nist.gov/projects/cryptographic-module-validation-program.
The NetBackup MSDP is now FIPS validated and can be operated in FIPS mode.
You must run FIPS mode on a new installation of NetBackup 8.1.1.
Ensure that you configure the storage server before you enable the MSDP FIPS mode.
Enabling MSDP FIPS mode might affect the NetBackup performance on a server with the Solaris operating system.
Enable the FIPS mode for MSDP by running the following commands:
Restart the NetBackup service on the server and the client.
Veritas recommends that you do not disable the MSDP FIPS mode once you enable it, for security reasons.
To get status of the MSDP FIPS mode, enter the following commands:
Other things to note:
FIPS must be enabled on all the NetBackup components to establish a connection. When the FIPS mode is not enabled, communication can occur between the NetBackup clients and the servers that have earlier, supported NetBackup versions.
The MSDP FIPS mode does not support NetBackup CloudCatalyst.
