FIPS mode for Cef

Postby Gk47 » Mon Aug 19, 2019 12:24 am


I am in search of checking if Cef uses any crypto algorithms that are not FIPS complaint.
I am actually using CefSharp control for my WPF application. When I searched in CefSharp, there was no algorithms which were used, but the underlying framework might be using it. So wanted to get the required information, since I did not find any links discussing on this topic. I thought its good to post it.

As per this link which I got - ... l?id=31087

My understanding is that Cef does not enable FIPS mode i.e. there might be algorithms that are not FIPS complaint or may not be.
So can any one tell me whether,

1. Cef enables FIPS mode or not? (if my understanding from above link is wrong)
2. Does Cef implements any Crypto algorithms that are not FIPS complaint.

Any help is highly appreciated.

Thank you

CEF is based on Chromium and implements no crypto algorithms independent of Chromium. If Chromium does not support FIPS then neither will CEF.
