What is FIPS Compliant?

“FIPS compliant” is a slippery phrase that often indicates that the cryptography used in a particular solution implements some or all the algorithms specified in FIPS 140-2 (e.g., AES) but that the underlying cryptography component has not been validated by NIST laboratories.
FIPS validated” is much stronger statement.
