FIPS 140-2 Compliant Baseline Image for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7

FIPS 140-2 (Federal Information Processing Standard) is a critical cryptographic benchmark required for non-military U.S. federal agencies, government contractors, and service providers. Adherence to this standard is obligatory for engagement with federal government entities handling sensitive but unclassified (SBU) data. Recognized by the U.S., Canadian, and European Union governments, FIPS 140-2 establishes the cryptographic security requirements for the management of information, encompassing collection, storage, transfer, sharing, and dissemination.

The provided Amazon Machine Image (AMI) ensures compliance with FIPS 140-2 at both the operating system and application levels. This facilitates running applications on this platform, meeting compliance requirements, and enhancing the runtime environment’s robustness.

In addition to this, preconfigured software applications are available, covering CMS platforms, Jenkins, databases, LAMP stack, Ansible, and popular DevOps toolchain components, along with monitoring applications. These applications are widely utilized by system administrators and DevOps engineers. Moreover, there are specialized, fortified images based on CIS benchmarks for selected Linux distributions. Importantly, the AMIs are meticulously built following official installation procedures, removing the need to learn any custom processes for additional configurations.
