You can configure Reflection X Advantage to use the United States government Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2 for distributed sessions that run in standalone mode.
When running in FIPS mode, all available settings use security protocols and algorithms that meet this standard. Options that do not meet these standards are not available, and only the Secure Shell connection method can be used to start X clients.
Running distributed sessions in standalone mode requires an X Manager on a workstation and an installation of Reflection X Advantage on an X client host with Remote Session Services enabled. You’ll need to set FIPS mode both on the X Manager on the user workstation and on the X client host that runs Remote Session Services.
NOTE:The X Manager Standalone FIPS setting must match the RSS node setting on the host client.
Before you begin
To configure X Manager to use FIPS for sessions using Remote Session Services
On the workstation open X Manager and on themenu, choose .
In the Preferences dialog box, under, select .
To configure Remote Session Services to use FIPS
On the X client host on which you installed Reflection X Advantage with Remote Session Services, open the host-nodes.xml file in the Install-directory/conf folder.
Change the FIPS setting to true.
