I can't believe this is correct. Did you try it and it failed? Did you file bugs? The dracut-fips and dracut-fips-aesni packages are both available. # cat /etc/redhat-release Fedora release 25 (Twenty Five) # sysctl crypto.fips_enabled crypto.fips_enabled = 0 So the basic stuff is there and the kernel knows what FIPS is. Any NSS-based application can enable FIPS-mode independently of the kernel via modutil or application-specific settings (e.g. NSSFIPS in mod_nss). rob -- Manage your subscription for the Freeipa-devel mailing list: https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/freeipa-devel Contribute to FreeIPA: http://www.freeipa.org/page/Contribute/Code
