FIPS Mode

Akeyless Gateway & CLI

๐Ÿ“˜

Note

Currently, FIPS mode is supported only for Linux OS

While working within a FIPS compliant environment, the following features are not supported:

  • RSA asymmetric encryption key with a length of 1024 bits.

  • AES SIV symmetric encryption keys.

  • TLS version lower than TLS 1.2

To run your Gateway in a FIPS compliant environment, run your Gateway deployment with this setting enabled:

For Docker, run the following command with the variable FIPS=true :

docker run -d -p 8000:8000 -p 8200:8200 -p 18888:18888 -p 8080:8080 -p 8081:8081 -p 5696:5696 -e FIPS=true --name akeyless-gw akeyless/base

For K8s, set the chart values.yaml with the following setting enabled:

deployment:
  fips:
    enabled: true

To work with our CLI in FIPS mode, download and install the following binary:

curl -o akeyless https://akeyless-cli.s3.us-east-2.amazonaws.com/cli/latest/production/cli-fips-linux-amd64
chmod +x akeyless
./akeyless
