Oracle Solaris Cryptographic Framework: Now Fully Validated!

It is with great pleasure that I can announce that Oracle has received our FIPS-140-2 certificates for the userland Solaris Cryptographic Framework as well!

I wrote in December about receiving our certificates for the kernel side.

These new certificates, certificate #2077 for Intel and SPARC64 processors and certificate #2076 for SPARC T4 and T5 processors, completes our story for FIPS-140-2 Level 1 validation for Solaris 11.1.

This was a long and difficult process, and I am very proud of the team of engineers, program managers, testers and documentation folks who made this all happen.
