Customers requiring FIPS certification
McAfee advises customers who require FIPS certification to upgrade to EEPC 7.0.
The ePO-managed versions of EEPC (6.x and 7.x) certify a cryptographic module and not the specific product version. When the product is installed in FIPS mode, it will install the FIPS certified binaries of the cryptographic module. This ensures that you can upgrade the version of EEPC and still remain in a FIPS certified mode.
To view the EEPC 7.0 FIPS certificate, see the NIST website:
NOTE: Installing EEPC 7.0 in FIPS mode will install the FIPS certified binaries from 6.1.3.
