Red Hat Virtualization Host (RHVH) Overview

Common Criteria

Red Hat Virtualization Host has not undergone Common Criteria certification. A future certification against the NIAP Protection Profile for Application Software is being considered.

To help Red Hat track demand for a Common Criteria certification of Red Hat Virtualization Host, please open a customer support case requesting an evaluation.

FIPS 140-2

Federal Information Processing Standard 140-2 is a legal requirement ensuring cryptographic tools implement algorithms properly. Vendors must certify their cryptographic implementations through NIST’s Cryptographic Module Validation Program.

FIPS 140-2 validation does not constitute an entire product. Rather, underlying cryptographic subsystems or components, such as OpenSSL and OpenSSH, are validated.

When Red Hat Virtualization Host runs on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.x, the following FIPS 140-2 validations are retained:

Product Component Version NIST Certificate Status Sunset/Expiration?
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.x OpenSSL 5.0 #3016 ACTIVE 9/14/2022
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.x OpenSSH Client 5.0 #3067 ACTIVE 11/26/2022
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.x OpenSSH Server 5.0 #3063 ACTIVE 11/13/2022
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.x Libreswan 5.0 #3083 ACTIVE 12/18/2022
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.x GnuTLS 5.0 #3012 ACTIVE 9/7/2022
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.x libgcrypt 5.0 #2657 ACTIVE 6/12/2021
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.x NSS 5.0 #3070 ACTIVE 2/7/2023
