|Installation / Installing the encryption software on Windows|
The FIPS certification describes security requirements for encryption modules. For example government bodies in the USA and in Canada require FIPS 140-2-certified software for particularly security-critical information.
SafeGuard Enterprise uses FIPS-certified AES algorithms, but by default, a new, faster implementation of the AES algorithms is installed that is not yet FIPS certified.
To use the FIPS certified variant of the AES algorithm, set the FIPS property to 1 (one) when installing the SafeGuard Enterprise encryption software.
You can do so by adding the property to the command line script:
msiexec /i F:\Software\SGNClient.msi FIPS=1
