You are correct, I just saw Crypto++ in the list of FIPS 140 validated 
modules:
http://csrc.nist.gov/cryptval/140-1/140val-all.htm
It is the latest entry, added today.
Congratulations to Wei Dai!

I was not aware of NSS before, their might be others as well which I

OpenSSL`s *source code* being evaluated remains exiting.

Thanks for the information Joshua and Rich!
