FIPS mode will restrict algorithm usage to just those algorithms included in the FIPS specifications. This results in
- Key exchange algorithms restricted to those that use primes >= 2048 bits.
- Use of AES and 3DES ciphers only
- Use of RSA keys only
- Use of SHA1 and SHA256 macs only
To instruct the client to use FIPS mode call the
enableFIPSMode method before creating your clients.
