Can anyone advise if it is possible to achieve FIPS level 1 compliancy (or above) when using the LTM VE product ?
We have had a request come in from a client that they would like us to become FIPS compliant however our long term design we were moving to us F5 VE (for our LTM/GTM deployments). I realise there is the HSM for the higher devices BIG-IP 6400 to 11050 to achieve FIPS l2/l3, and that it is possible to set up the supported ciphers when doing SSL decryption for a web site so that it just supports the FIPS approved range.
I am just wondering if it is at all possible to achieve level 1 FIPS compliancy on devices that do not support the HSM?
thanks in avance
