FIPS Mode on VM-Series

L0 Member


I have a couple of questions regarding FIPS mode on a VM-Series platform:

1. Is this possible?

2. Does FIPS mode disable access to the Hypervisor console similar to disabling the serial connection on a physical appliance?

3. How do CSRs get exported / imported to a firewall running in FIPS mode (is this done before FIPS mode is enabled)?

4. Are there any other differences to consider when running FIPS mode on a VM-series firewall?


Thanks in advance,
