Centrify Renews Commitment to Federal Information Processing Standards

March 1, 2017

The new release of Centrify Server Suite (CSS) 2017 contains an updated version of the Centrify Cryptographic Module, which provides the cryptographic services used within the suite. Just as we did with the previous version, this new crypto module has also received FIPS 140-2 validation, and its certificate #2844 has been posted on the NIST validation list.


The Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) Publication 140-2 is a standard set by the US Government to approve cryptographic modules, and all software used within federal networks that perform encryption are required to be FIPS 140-2 validated. Centrify has hundreds of federal customers and has secured their identities for many years. We are committed to assuring they meet today's highest federal security and information processing standards.

It should be noted that CSS has also successfully passed the Common Criteria Evaluation and is certified at the EAL (Evaluation Assurance Level) 2+.  Additionally Centrify Server Suite is the selected solution for DHS CDM Phase 2 CRED that ensures all federal agency associates only have access to servers, applications or network resources based on their unique role and responsibility within their organization.

Please refer to the Federal Compliance web page for more information on how Centrify provides software and services to provide secure and productive compliance to federal regulations.
