FEITIAN MFA Cryptographic Module has achieved the FIPS 140-2 level 2

Mar 1th, 2023


We are thrilled to announce that FEITIAN MFA Cryptographic Module has been granted the certification of FIPS-140-2 Level 2, with Physical Security Level 3 by the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)!

This module is the heart of many of FEITIAN’s ultra-secure hardware authenticator products – including ePass FIDO NFC Plus, iePass FIDO, and BioPass FIDO Plus series*. With this latest FIPS certification, our customers can continue to enjoy these easy to use products without sacrificing high levels of security. Now these products also meet the highest authenticator assurance level 3 (AAL3) of NIST SP800-63B.

At FEITIAN Technologies we always strive to achieve the best product quality with the highest standard of security. Previously, with certificate #3979**, BioPass FIDO security keys were FIPS certified for FIDO2/U2F in July 2021 (before the physical security levels were defined). Now we are proud to share the news that NIST validates our continuous effort to uphold highest security standards.
