Paul: When you compile OpenSSH against OpenSSL in FIPS mode, your OpenSSH will inherit the FIPS 140-2 certification which applies to OpenSSL.

I have an application where I have to implement SFTP file transfers with FIPS 140-2 certified encryption. I've been trying to find out if I can use Open SSH for this or if I have to buy a commercial solution. Essentially I have two questions. 1) Can I compile Open SSH from source using the Open SSL Fips sources and "inherit" the Fips certification? 2) Has anybody compiled Open SSH using the Fips Open SSL sources and can they give me any pointers on how to do that? Any data on the difficulty or time involved would be appreciated since I have to justify the final decision to my $BOSS. I would be doing this on a Sun SPARC system running Solaris 10. I have access to both gcc and the Sun Workshop compilers and would appreciate any insight on either or both. TIA Paul Paul S.
