FIPS 140-2 support in open source


Is there support for FIPS 140-2 in the open source version of SQLcipher?


Hello @mhester07

SQLCipher core does contains the hooks to interface with a FIPS module, so it is technically possible to build. That said, the process is not trivial and we do not provide any public guidance or support for those attempting to compile their own implementation with a FIPS provider. Our only official support is for our prebuilt binaries through our enterprise program.


Is it possible for me to buy pre-built binaries with FIPS support for Linux ARM processor?
