Enabling FIPS Level Security

The Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 140-2 validated cryptographic modules are used by the US federal government as a security regulation standard. Host Access for the Cloud supports this standard and you can easily enable FIPS mode by editing a file in the session server.

  • Open <install_directory>\sessionserver\microservice\sessionserver\service.yml.

  • Add the flag -Dcom.attachmate.integration.container.FIPS.enabled=true to the appropriate OS specific Java command; for Unix - start-command, for Windows - start-command-win.

  • Restart the server.

  • To ensure that FIPS mode is enabled, open <install_directory>\sessionserver\logs\sessionserver.log and verify that FIPS mode is set to true; FIPS mode: true.
