Second highest number of FIPS 140-2 certificates issued in 2013
The CMVP recovered nicely at the end of 2013 -- working down 8+ month queue times to 5.5 months -- to have the second highest year of validating FIPS 140-2 cryptographic modules. With 208 new FIPS certificates issued in 2013, only 2010 tops that number with 229.
Here are the totals by Laboratory for 2013.
Congratulations (again!) to the FIPS Team at InfoGard Laboratories. That's 5 years in a row of producing the most FIPS 140-2 certificates (2009-2013).
