FIPS 140-2 is a U.S. government encryption standard created by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Used by federal government agencies in the U.S. and Canada, FIPS 140-2 is also widely used in regulated industries such as finance, healthcare, legal, and utilities, as well as commercial businesses.
Hikvision's encryption module (HIKSSL) received Level 1 FIPS 140-2 certification to be used in both IP cameras and NVR products. The FIPS 140-2 validation process is comprehensive, and includes a series of rigorous tests by an independent and accredited U.S. security laboratory, and NIST compliance confirmation.
