FIPS 140-2 Compliance in SQL Monitor

FIPS 140-2 Compliance

The Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) publication 140-2 sets out security requirements for cryptographic modules, including a laboratory validation program to approve them.

SQL Monitor does not itself implement any cryptographic functions, instead relying on Microsoft-provided libraries which are part of the .NET Framework. Since SQL Monitor 9.1.3, only cryptographic libraries which have been validated by Microsoft for use in FIPS environments are used by SQL Monitor.

SQL Monitor is therefore suitable for use in FIPS environments, including Windows environments where the System cryptography: Use FIPS compliant algorithms for encryption, hashing, and signing setting has been enabled.
