Specifying this option forces all MobiLink encryption to use FIPS-certified algorithms. You can still use unencrypted connections
when the -fips option is specified, but you cannot use simple encryption.
When you use this option, FIPS-certified algorithms are used for connections regardless of whether you specify them. For example,
if you start the MobiLink server with the option -fips and the option -x tls(...;fips=no;...), the fips=no setting is ignored
and the server starts with fips=yes.
Separately licensed component required.
ECC encryption and FIPS-certified encryption require a separate license. All strong encryption technologies are subject to
For MobiLink transport-layer security, the -fips option causes the server to use the FIPS-certified RSA encryption algorithm,
even if RSA without the -fips option is specified. If ECC is specified, an error occurs because a FIPS-certified elliptic-curve
algorithm is not available.
