CMVP on pace with last year's FIPS 140-2 validations

During the first quarter of 2011, the CMVP issued 53 new FIPS 140-2 certificates.  If we use simple math to predict the number of new FIPS certificates for 2011 we get 212 (there were 229 new certs last year).

InfoGard is 13% ahead of our record year (2010) after the first quarter.  I am predicting that the CMVP will be very close to equaling the number of new FIPS certificates this year.  The chart below shows the breakdown by Laboratory for 2011 (through April 12, 2011 there are 57 new FIPS certs).  The number under the Lab name is the number of certificates for 2011.
