Platform and VE FIPS Module and Upgrade Notes

About using F5 modules

Only certain F5 modules are FIPS-validated. This means that to maintain FIPS validation for traffic, you can use only the validated modules. You can provision and set up other modules and use them for processing traffic, but traffic that uses any non-validated modules would not be considered FIPS-validated.
These modules are FIPS-validated:
  • Local Traffic Manager (LTM)
  • Advanced Firewall Manager (AFM)

About upgrading TMOS

Before you install any software updates or hot fixes, verify the FIPS validation status of that version on the F5 Certifications page (
f5.com/about-us/certifications
). The system allows you to apply all updates, but if the version has not been validated, your device will no longer be considered FIPS-validated.
