FIPS_mode_set(1) always returns false

taraniteja vishwanatha
Hey guys,

I have built openssl-FIPS module (1.2.4) for iOS as per the instructions in the user guide 1.2. I have included the headers and libraries in my test app. I call FIPS_mode_set(1) in the app and it always returns false. 
Is it because 1.2.4 module supports iOS 5.0 and I am using iOS 5.1?
Also, are 1.2.4 User guide instructions valid to build 2.0 module which supports iOS 5.1?

Thank you,
Tarani

Shouldn’t you be using FIPS 2.0 object module with openssl 1.01c ? That is what I am using

I did not see any build instructions in http://openssl.org/docs/fips/UserGuide-2.0.pdf
to build the FIPS module for iOS. The instructions are given only in 1.2 User guide.

This is what I am confused about. How did you build the FIPS2.0 module for iOS?

These queries would more appropriately directed to the openssl-users list.

Check the latest draft of the User Guide that hasn't been posted to
openssl.org yet:

  http://opensslfoundation.com/testing/validation-2.0/docs/UserGuide-2.0.pdf

The instructions are essentially the same as for the 1.2.x module.
