Intel IPP for Cryptography has been successfully validated under CAVP and the following certificates have been issued on Nov 13:
Please, look for the details at http://csrc.nist.gov/cryptval -> Validation Lists / Algorythms.
I have examined NIST FIPS 140 algorithm certificate #460; it indicates that revision 5 is the FIPS 140 validated and certified version of IPP. Subsequent posts indicate that revision 5 is the only validated and certified version. Today it appears that one can only procure version 9 or perhaps version 8. My question is in two parts. First, is version 5 in fact the only FIPS validated and certified version? If there is a current certified version please give me the certificate number. Otherwise, if a current FIPS validated and certified version is not available, is it possible to obtain and use IPP version 5? I develop using FORTRAN/C/C++ in Windows.
FIPS validation for IPP was performed only once - for the 5th version. I don't recommend you to use such old IPP version - it doesn't have optimizations for the latest CPUs and, the most important thing, - is not mitigated from several vulnerabilities that have been discovered later. And I think there is no legal way to get this IPP version from https://registrationcenter.intel.com/
