FIPS-certified encryption technology

You can use FIPS-certified encryption algorithms to encrypt your database files, or to encrypt communications for database client/server communication, web services, and client/server communication.

Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2 specifies requirements for encryption algorithms. The FIPS 140-2 certification program is a joint effort between the American National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the Canadian Communications Security Establishment (CSE). The Federal agencies of both Canada and the United States accept products that are certified as FIPS 104-2 conforming.

SQL Anywhere provides 32-bit and 64-bit FIPS-certified libraries for encryption from OpenSSL. On Windows, you must use the 64-bit libraries on a 64-bit system.
