Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS)
When Reflection is configured to run in FIPS mode it enforces the United States government Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2. All available settings use security protocols and algorithms that meet this standard. Options that do not meet these standards are not available. You can configure individual sessions to run in FIPS mod or enforce FIPS mode for all Reflection sessions.
Configure specific Secure Shell sessions to run in FIPS mode
You can use the following procedure to configure specific Secure Shell sessions to run in FIPS mode.
Note: This procedure does not enforce FIPS standards for all Secure Shell sessions. This change is saved to your Secure Shell configuration file and is applied to a specific SSH configuration scheme. (If you don't specify a scheme, the setting applies to all connections to the current host.) This change has no effect on subsequent Secure Shell sessions unless they are configured to use the same SSH configuration scheme (or host name).
To set FIPS mode for particular hosts or SSH configuration schemes
You can also configure this setting manually by editing the Secure Shell configuration file manually. The keyword for setting FIPS mode is FIPSMode.
Configure all Reflection sessions to run in FIPS mode
Administrators can use Reflection Group Policies to configure all Reflection sessions to run in FIPS mode.
