Integrating validated and NIST-certified third party cryptographic module(s), and using the module(s) as the only provider(s) of cryptographic services;
Using FIPS-approved cryptographic functions;
Using FIPS-approved and NIST-validated technologies;
Using security controls defined in NIST 800-53, prescribed for cryptographic modules by FIPS 140-2 and applicable for Obsidian Gate design, implementation and operation.
