FIPS 140 Compliance While Running Application

Q: FIPS 140 Compliance While Running Application

When you change the following registry value to "1", is FIPS enabled in realtime or does the machine need to be rebooted?


We require FIPS 140-2 compliance on all machines running WinZip. I was wondering if it was possible to enable FIPS when WinZip is opened. FIPS breaks several sites, applications, etc in our environment and trying to find the best way to be FIPS compliant so
that WinZip runs in FIPS mode. FIPS is not needed for anything other than WinZip at this point. Any suggestions?

Preferred Solution: FIPS 140 Compliance While Running Application

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


I am currently unable to backup recovery information to Active Directory from any of my Windows 7 machines.
The error I am receiving is "Group Policy setting requiring FIPS compliance prevents recovery password from being saved to Active Directory"
I have the FIPS group policy "System cryptography: Use FIPS compliant algorithms" set to disabled for the entire domain, and have run an RSOP on the machines which shows that the policy is not enabled anywhere else.

In the local group policy on the machines it shows that FIPS is disabled as well.

What are the requirements for an existing application to be comaptible on Windows Vista RC1? How they are different from " Works with Windows Vista" requiremnts?

A:Requirements For Application Compliance.

I suspect that you'll have to contact Microsoft on MSDN to find that out. But, since Vista has gone RTM, I suspect they aren't very concerned with RC1 right now.

I have a web based application and want it to port it on Windows Vista . What are the procedures I must follow to check for its compliance on safe deployment on Vista?

A:Web Based Application Compliance Testing

Let's see. I have no clue, but if I think about it, it must be:
Does your web server software work properly in Vista?
Which flavor of Vista do you plan on using?
Do you have the hardware to support it?
Have you checked into any of the documentation?
If you have checked into the documentation, promptly ignore it, set up your own test box, and see how things shake out. If what you find out on your own correlates with the documentation, then you might start to have some confidence.

That's where I would start if it were me. Essentially, a web service comes down to the web-server software, some sort of a middle tier, and I would imagine some sort of database. Are they compatible with Vista?

i have an M6500 that i recently installed a fingerprint reader in. i was running win 7 and machine was in great working order. after i loaded the drivers for fips my computer freaked out and i fresh installed win 7 OS. at that point things got really bad.
at that point i used a dod scrubber program to wipe all ssd drives and started completely over. i reinstalled win 7 and could not get it to update, of course IE 11 would not update. after a lot of research i found there is an update by MS in june/july for win 7 that keeps win 7 from updating without it.
so i scrubbed all drives again and removed ssd #2&3. at this point im very frustrated and just cant understand MS and Dell with drivers that dont work, updates that basically disable an OS, blah blah whane.
i ended up installing fresh win 8.1 and reinstalling ssd's. win 8.1 updated and system is now operating normal. though the control vault is for "NO" fingerprint reader. also the device manager does not see the physical device, i assume that is due to having no drivers for device.
if you could help me out with this i would really appreciate it. i have spent a year upgrading and refurbishing this machine. i really like it and would like to get this fixed. my knowledge with hardware is good, but my software experience is lacking and limited. thank you all in advance.

It appears something in 1.8 is using non-FIPS compliant crypto. I had to remove our ATA server from our regulatory compliance groups in order to get the web app to work correctly. With this issue, authentication no longer works and the ATA center displays

We are a FIPS compliant shop. We have smb signing turned on. Currently we have not enabled FIPS on the windows shares.
We are having issues mounting CIFS shares onto our FIPS compliant Linux servers. It seems that while FIPS can be enabled and sec=krb5 used to mount SMB shares, it is not possible if smb signing is turned ON.
In order to be compliant can we safely assume that smb signing is a "subset" of FIPS, turn smb signing OFF and enable FIPS mode on the windows servers?
Thanks in advance.

A while back one of my programs didn't launch. I received an error "This implementation is not part of the Windows Platform FIPS validated cryptographic algorithms". I learned how to disable FIPS using Regedit. The problem is that every time I reboot the computer, the FIPS registry key gets re-enabled.
I'm trying to find out how to permanently remove the FIPS stuff from my computer.
I don't know what actually caused the FIPS issue to start up in the first place.

Here's a little thread of my own for a change.

The machine is a Dell Precision 690 running XP SP3, fully updated. For no apparent reason it failed to start in Normal Mode yesterday, flashes a blue screen and restarts, and resists all attempts to make that Stop Error Message stand still. It starts in Safe Mode with Networking and allowed MalwareBytes to load and scan, finding 35 treats in the Quick Scan, all of which were fixed and after a restart, found nothing else in the Full Scan.

The system will not allow Spybot or SAS to be installed, citing administrative policy but AVG finds nothing and HJT reports no strange activity since MBAM did its job. Event Viewer tells me Fips and IntelPPM failed to load on the Normal Mode startups and that could be the problem. I've changed the Start code from 1 to 4 in the Registry to no avail but am a bit squiffy about changing it to 0. Does anyone reckon there's merit in deleting those keys completely?

For whatever historic reasons, there are no SR points to which to restore and no-one in that office knows the Administrator password and without messing around with Dell RAID drivers, I can't even get to the Repair option.

Checkdisk promises to start on the next restart but does not. sfc /scannow cannot operate in Safe Mode - that's what I call safe!

Suggestions welcome, with thanks in advance.

After setting up Remote Assistance in group policy for our domain, I can easily use it when not in FIPS mode by typing: msra /offerra
However, if I have FIPS enabled on the PC I run this command from, the Remote Assistance session doesn?t connect.
reg add HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa\FipsAlgorithmPolicy /v Enabled /t REG_DWORD /d 1
But it works again if I disable FIPS:
reg add HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa\FipsAlgorithmPolicy /v Enabled /t REG_DWORD /d 0
It doesn?t matter if the other computer has FIPS enabled or not, just the helper computer that issues the ?msra /offerra? command.  How do I configure Microsoft Remote Assistance to work with a Windows 7 workstation in FIPS mode?

A:FIPS support with Microsoft Remote Assistance?

By default, the connections are encrypted when using Remote Assistance, as it uses RDP. Remote Assistance dosn't support FIPS encryption, but RDP does. Hence, you can configure RDP to use FIPS encryption.
Regarding FIPS encryption with RDP, you can have a look at the following link:

I just received my M7710 with Windows 10 Pro 64-bit.
I'm having problems with the fingerprint reader from the very start. During fingerprint registration it frequent gave me a message to the effect 'unable to detect fingerprint and to clean the reader'. I eventually tapped the reader enough that it completed the registration process.
Of course the machine is brand new and it's the first time the reader has been touched by me. It looks clean.
When I try to login using the reader, the same general thing occurs. It doesn't recognize my fingerprint even after multiple attempts, and then finally either does or doesn't in the end.
So do I have a faulty reader? Is it a poor device I paid extra for? Am I doing something wrong when registering my fingerprint?
I'm simply putting my index finger on the reader, picking it up and putting it down again.

Hello all,

while evaluating a new enterprise tool for our company a question was asked to the suppliers if their software is Vista compliant. One solution only requires a thin client with IE 5.5 or higher to use and say that they will not check if their software is Vista compliant as Vista uses IE 7 and they have tested with IE7 and Windows XP and it works fine.

Is there something that could prevent their software from working in Vista? Should we require them to certify Vista compliance?

I purchased a usb type c spectre late last year (the rose version with i7 and 512GB.  It generally works well but so far the power system is very disappointing.  The basic issue is I purchased this device specifically because it purports to be USB Type C compliant.  That means I should be able to charge the device with any usb type c charger provided it meets the technical specs (e.g. 45 watts and so forth).  But it doesn't.  Instead, the software settings seem to make it in effect a proprietary set up.  If so, this is objectionable and possibly contrary Australian consumer law.  The problem is that I can only charge the device with the supplied charger.  The first issue is the charger is excessively heavy and bulky.  Why does the world's slimest and lightest laptop have such a bulky charger.  It's comparable to the laptop itself.  This is just dumb!The second issue is I can't use the rest of my USB Type C set up including a large battery, and a charger in my car.  Nor can I use my phone charger.  So I have to drag the HP charger everywhere.  The third issue is that only 1 of the 3 ports actually charges other devices at the USB Type C spec.  The 2 lighting ports are not USB Type C at all - they are just 3.1 with a usb type c connector.  So they only charge the phone at 20 per cent, the phone won't transfer data, and various peripherals such as a bluetooth keyboard/mouse don't have enough juice to...

Hi everyone,
I am currently working on an application running in Windows 7 Ultimate, and it has to be FIPS 140-2 compliance.
As far as I have researched in https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/security/cc750357.aspx, there is a kind of validation process which consist in set a policy setting (secpol.msc) for using FIPS algorithms. The other step consist in checking that
a few binaries (cng.sys, bcryptprimtive.dll) are the same version than the validated from NIST. http://csrc.nist.gov/groups/STM/cmvp/documents/140-1/140val-all.htm#1328
I am having troubles with this last step, the thing is that I cannot find any place where it is said how to modified these binaries, e.g. hotfix, downgrade separatly these binaries, ...
Could somebody help me or clarify me this issue? Is it necessary to have the versions from NIST validated list?

Hello everybody,

I am having some major problems with my computer. I'm on Windows XP SP3 and around a week and a half ago I found that my computer would freeze soon after I logged on. The computer becomes totally unresponsive and nothing works.

I can log on in Safe Mode, where I found in Error Reporting that the following drivers failed to load on start up - Fips, Intelppm, SAVRT and SYMTDI.

I have recently done several antivirus/malware sweeps, using my antivirus programs and combofix, hijackthis etc - so I now believe my computer to be malware free.

However, the problem remains so I am now faced with a Windows/HDD problem and I am stuck and do not know what to do next.

Could any experts on here offer me any advice? It would be greatly appreciated.

Hello, my version of Windows 7 has failed to install, both at boot and within windows XP. The in-OS install failed, generically stating that it couldn't read the files it was looking for. (It REALLY needs a details tab for IT experts. It could have been my raid drivers, which seem to be running afoul in other OS's...s) The boot install didn't even start stating that my BIOS was not fully compatible with APCI.
However it is a feature-laden Gigabyte model from this year! There are no BIOS updates in regards to ACPI.

A:ACPI Compliance Failure? REALLY?

Welcome SI5K,

Sounds like you have been reading some posts first, good start. Must give you a for having your system specs in place. I have found in several of my installs of Win7 that the Bios settings were rather confusing as to how ACPI was enabled or not. So I just made several attemps until I got the right one recognized by Win7 install. that's just one thought. What Build # of win7 are you installing? How did you burn the DVD? 4x speed? seems to work best for most members. You did not state how much memory you have, but you say you took 1 stick out & attempted an install.

No Over-clocking of CPU, right ?

We can start here & other members will jump in with their thoughts, also. Sounds like all the right hardware, just some minor bugs to configure correctly.

Hi guys...an odd question here and I am mad at my IT Manager !!

Being a network Admin in-charge, i want to enforce a few policies at help desk. One of them is, not to create any user account unless an email arrives from HR to HelpDesk, informing of the user's badge ID, the department he/she belongs to. The status of employment and all those things. The procedures are in place but sometimes it so happens that some head of the Dept. call our IT Manager over the phone, or send him an email directly whcih is then forwarded to our Help Desk incharge who is then left with little options but to create the account without due processes.

HelpDesk incharge is bound by his position to defy IT manager and he is scared to tell me (sometimes he does) that IT manager is forcing him to dilute the AD account creation policy.

I don't want to confront IT manager based upon inputs by Helpdesk guys but would rather put a mechanism in place, where I would automatically come to know, that an account has been created and I can ask helpdesk to provide proof of the email from HR arbitrarily and then confront the manager.

I know some Audit trails can be put and they would appear under Securty tab of Event manager ( or so I guess) but I need something more automated that would land in my mailbox.

Is this possible?

I work at a very small business with a newer credit card machine that is wired into a Netgear router with an Ethernet cable.

Credit card terminal runs thur no computer, it is hooked directly to the router.

I try to take care of all the IT concerns and problem when they come up.

The new PCI compliance rules that went into effect on Jan 31st 2018 are giving me real problems.

We have a static IP address which has not changed for about 4 years.
We always passed the PCI compliance scan done by a company called Trustwave.

For the pass 2 months we have failed the scans. The reason stated in the report is "Host not detected".

They (Trustwave) has told me that something in the router must be blocking the scan.

Basically they have been no help.

Does anyone know the solution to this problem?? I think that there must be thousands of small business with the same problem, as I tried to call Trustwave support but got only voice mail leave a call back number because of high call volume. I have been communicating with them only by email.

I am thinking that there must be a simple solution to this, but I have not found it yet.

If we passed the last 4 years and nothing on our end has changed then why can we not pass now.?

Makes no sense to me.

Anybody got any ideas ??? Should I call the bank that services the credit card machine ?

I have been trying to make my web pages 3WC / 4.01 compliant and viewable as much as possible across different browsers (albeit not perfectly)

I have been to http://AnyBrowser.Com and checked my pages in their site viewer. I have looked at the 3WC homepage and their markup Validation service at http://validator.w3.org/

Basically according to all the above, my pages look like crap and have heaps of errors.

I have located the online HTML Tidy service at:


I have used this HTML Tidy in combination with the Site Viewer at AnyBrowser.com and the Validator at 3WC.

After having reviewed and noted results of my existing pages in the Site Viewer and the Validator, I put my pages through the HTML Tidy, Copied the Page Source, pasted this into Dreamweaver and uploaded new pages.

I have put these new pages back through the Site Viewer and the Validator only to find that the pages are MUCH worse than they were before.

Even in the 3WC Validator the code entered by HTML Tidy is noted as errors (ex: Doc Type is replaced by Tidy code etc).

I can't understand why HTML Tidy would allow this to happen if it is indeed supposed to promote the 3WC compliance?

I am thinking that my only option at this point is to delete my HTML Tidy pages, go back to the originals and go through the errors listed in the 3WC Validator and manually fix them one by one...which (even with the error explanations handy) I am not sure that I can do properly (or indeed ...

Hi All,
I have a customer that is trying to jump through Trustwave's
questionnaire on PCI compliance (credit cards).  This is
their explanation of one of the required tests:  they
want both "vulnerability" and "penetration testing".  Now I don't
see the difference, but they do:
       Vulnerability scanning uses automated tools to attempt
       to discover vulnerabilities in the cardholder data
       environment.  Penetration testing goes further by
       having personnel *manually* attempt to exploit
       vulnerabilities and gaps in security the same way a
       criminal would.  Without penetration testing, you may
       know where vulnerabilities may be, but you won't know
       how deep an attacker can get or what he may be able to
"Manually"?  How is the world does one do that?  Try to log in
with telnet?  Call the local federal prison and ask to borrow
a hacker for the day?  What can I do manually that the
"automated tools" can't?
Now I an see trying to seal the hole and retesting, but
that is not what they are asking for.  They want me
to sit down and try to breaking into the thing *the same
way a criminal would*!

Also, I used cyberlink BluRay advisor and it said my "software player was not found" and "video connection type is digital without HDCP". Those are the only two problems found. I have a HP 2310 series wide lcd display and have a ATI Radeon HD 5570 video card, and am using a HDMI cable to the monitor. Can someone please help me with this. 

A:HDCP Compliance Issue, Everything is Compliant Though???

Hi Eric,   The Cyberlink BD Advisor only look for a Cyberlink BD software player.  You might very well have a perfectly good BD HDCP certified software player and Cyberlink won't indicate that you have it.  Your non-Cyberlink BD player might need updating to play the new BD titles.  The other issue might be a loose or faulty HDMI cable, a bad video card, corrupted video driver or a monitor problem. Power off the PC and monitor. Check the cables for tightness.  Be sure that you monitor has only one video connection and that it is a HDMI cable. Now try a monitor reset by unplugging the monitor's power cord and then hold down the power button for 30 seconds.  If you still have issues then try reinstalling the video card driver or installing the latest AMD driver from the AMD web site.

Hello guys..

Ok, so the problem is when i'm running any app like Google Chrome, Windows Live Messenger, or any other, even sometimes when i open a windows folder (Explorer.exe), it freezes for a while (i'd say for 1 minute) and then *puff* continues running, and later happens again, and again.... Its been happening for like a week now, and before that i didn't have this problem ... So my guess is some freaking windows update, but i hope you can help me solve this issue.

Here are my DESKTOP specs:

OS: Windows 7 Ultimate (32 bit)
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) 2 Quad CPU Q8200 @ 2.3 GHz 2.3 GHz
RAM: 4.00 GB
Intel(R) G41 Express Chipset

Note that i recently bought this computer

I really hope you guys can help me out...

Sorry for my english its not very strong.. Hope you can understand my problem

Hi all,
yesterday i was performing some routing maintenance on my pc, and i noticed there was an evernt log showing an error of an application that was stored in the path. (Please note i didnt mistype VLC).
It was always giving me an error code 0x0000005. I am worried if this is some sort of virus.
when i checked with a windows defender and avg i got no virus. It was also using the visual basic command line script process when i checked task manager.
What else could i do to check out the problem?

EDIT: I tried searching online, but i found no results

A:Unknown application running on my pc

Searching with Startpage shows one link to a fix for some virus and a couple of links to Garmin GPS software. Nothing else of substance.
Lycos found an article about an old Server 2000 bug and a Lee Van Clief screensaver.
I'd try every search engine you can think of until something makes sense.
