The GSW FIPS 140-2 compliant SSH Server, includes FIPS 140-2 compliant Windows Desktop / Mobile CE clients, at no extra cost. Your don't have to take chances, GSW provides the End to End security you can count on.Ensure END to END compliance by permitting only GSW FIPS 140-2 compliant clients to connect! Its configurable!
The GSW SSH Server with FIPS 140-2 compliance option provides both TRUE client and server compliance for organizations that must meet these high standards. Please be sure to review the associated documents to get a better understanding of the importance of End to End security.
Sometimes vendors of incomplete solutions will claim that since the devices' operating system is FIP 140-2 compliant that any SSH client running on it is FIPS 140-2 automatically compliant too.
This is NOT TRUE
Do not believe it. The SSH client does not automatically inherit all the operating system qualities. Just as having a 64-bit operating system, does not make all the applications 64-bit applications, a FIPS 140-2 compliant OS does not make the client FIPS 140-2 compliant.
However it is true that a FIPS 140-2 client must run on a FIPS 140-2 compliant operating system or internally contain all FIPS 140-2 certified cryptographic modules.
These are critical distinctions, that make the difference in being FIPS 140-2 compliant or not.
The GSW FIPS Compliant SSH Server and clients are FIPS 140-2 compliant when running on FIPS 140-2 compliant operating systems.

With respect to the client device operating system, the significant aspect is that the version of the cryptographic module rsaenh.dll must be NIST(National Institute of Standards and Technology) certified, which begins with build 143188.8.131.52. With Windows CE 5.0 extra attention should be taken to ensure the correct version of rsaenh.dll is present. Per information from Microsoft support early versions of Windows CE 5.0 did not come with a FIPS 140-2 certified version of rsaenh.dll. This may require contacting the device vendor to determine the correct version number of that cryptographic module.

|Yes, security is serious business. Keep alert to some common "Weasel words", ambiguous or misleading terms that give you a false sense of security.
Here are some questions to consider
|VERY POWERFUL TOOL
Minimize problems from the start. If they are not supposed to be on your server - Don't let them on!
If they are allowed on to perform a job, let them perform the job and not be distracted with other options.
