IA-07 Cryptographic Module Authentication

Control: The information system employs authentication methods that meet the requirements of applicable laws, Executive Orders, directives, policies, regulations, standards, and guidance for authentication to a cryptographic module.

Supplemental Guidance: The applicable federal standard for authentication to a cryptographic module is FIPS 140-2 (as amended). Validation certificates issued by the NIST Cryptographic Module Validation Program (including FIPS 140-1, FIPS 140-2, and future amendments) remain in effect, and the modules remain available for continued use and purchase until a validation certificate is specifically revoked. Additional information on the use of validated cryptography is available at http://csrc.nist.gov/cryptval.
