FIPS 140-2 is a standard
that defines the security requirements that must be satisfied by a
cryptographic module used in a security system protecting unclassified
information within IT systems. In SAS 9.3, enhancements have been
made to support this standard of security. SAS/SECURE
and SSL now
comply with the FIPS 140-2 standard. See FIPS 140-2 Standards Compliance for more information.
