SecureAuth Credential Provider v2.6.5 FIPS Error 1001

SecureAuth Version Affected: All versions

Description:

When installing SecureAuth Credential Provider v2.6.5 on a FIPS-compliant server, it gives the following error:

Error 1001. This implementation is not part of the Windows Platform FIPS validated cryptographic algorithms.

Cause:

In Credential Provider v2.6.5, the encryption algorithm was moved to AES256, but utilized a non-FIPS library, which broke FIPS compliance. The Product Management team is aware of the issue and will have a FIPS compliant AES256 library in the next release of the Credential Provider due later this year.

Resolution:

There are two resolutions for this issue:

  1. Install the previous version of Credential Provider, version 2.1.11. This version utilizes 3DES, which is FIPS compliant.
  2. Wait for the next release of the Credential Provider which is due later this year.
