I'm looking to set up MOSS 2007 (unfortunately we can't use 2010) in a FIPS-compliant way. We will be using Server 2008 (or R2) in FIPS compliance mode and will be using SQL 2008 with TDE and FIPS-Compliance.
I've tried to read around on the subject but haven't found much.
This post on Egghead cafe seems to suggest that I need to do the following:
- Install MOSS 2007
- Install all updates, patches, etc. to ensure the latest version (which includes FIPS cryptography)
- Update the machineKey setting to use the 3DES algorithm.
- Create the SharePoint site.
Is there more to it than this, or any pitfalls I might need to avoid? I am relatively new to SharePoint installations and am trying to beef up a little bit before jumping in.
Thanks in advance for any help you can give! I love the StackExchange network sites and hope SharePoint Overflow can once again help enlighten me :)
All the best, Sean
