StrongAuth and CERTOSS - a US-based non-profit organization for the
certification of open-source software - are sponsoring a free, one-
day seminar in Cupertino, CA on Thursday Sept 22nd 2016, to educate
Java programmers on how to use a new BC JAR library that expects to
receive FIPS 140-2 Level 1 certification imminently (it has passed
all the certification tests according to BC, and is waiting on a
NIST review of the results).
The use of this new JAR file can help companies using cryptographic
libraries in their applications, claim they are complying with FAR
regulations in the use of a FIPS certified module for cryptographic
processing (when used in the stipulated manner).
David Hook of the Legion of the BouncyCastle, and author of the well
known book on Cryptography with Java (Wrox), will be conducting this
