FIPs mode FMC/FTD

hhha7x

Trying to follow DISA SRGs, and one of the requirements is to enable FIPS mode on our 2140 FTDs, managed by FMC. I am new to these so was doing some searching online and it sounds like CC compliance is what needs to be enabled.

Am I correct in saying the CC compliance in the FMC found in system>configuration>UCAPL/CC Compliance is what I need to enable? Does that essentially enable "FIPS" mode?

Also, are there any precautions I should be aware of before enabling this? I usually will always open a TAC case and have someone on standby when making changes like this, but just want to ask ahead of time. Any way this could possibly cause a network outage?

Also, am I understanding correctly that once you enable this, you cannot disable it without reinstalling FMC? You have to completely wipe it?

Hi hhha7x,

Did you enable FIPS mode? I am going through this now and am curious how this worked out for you.
