FIPS-Validated Istio builds
The Tetrate Istio distributions include a FIPS-validated build of Istio, suitable for organizations with compliance requirements or a very strong security posture. The FIPS-validated build uses only certified cipher algorithms that meet the requirements and standards for cryptographic modules for use by departments and agencies of the United States federal government. Many organizations follow FIPS to ensure their own security is up to par with verified security standards.
The FIPS 140-2 standard only permits approved algorithms (ciphers) that have been proven to meet very high standards of security, being resistant to known attacks, impractical to brute-force, and offering a high level of confidentiality. Cipher implementations perform sophisticated self-tests to identify attempts to tamper with their implementation.
The FIPS-validatred builds are available to all Tetrate subscribers.
