To enable FIPS for SSH connections
In the administration interface, connect to EFT and click the Server tab.
On the Server tab, click the Server node on which you want to enable FIPS mode.
In the right pane, click the Security tab.
In the Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) area, select the Use FIPS certified library for SSH connections check box.
Click Apply to save the changes on EFT.
On EFT's General tab, review the Statistics area to verify that the service started.
If the HSM has expired when you attempt to start a Site on a Server that has FIPS mode enabled, an error message appears in the administration interface, and the Server sends an error message to the Event Log.
When the EFT Site is started, if FIPS is enabled, a message displays the protocols in use and which of the protocols in use are FIPS certified. When you enable FIPS, the ciphers, key, and hash lengths/types that are not FIPS-approved are not available. If a FIPS-approved state cannot be achieved when FIPS is enabled, all Sites will stop, and an error is written to the Windows Event Log.
