General availability: FIPS enabled node pool in Azure Kubernetes
Published date: 19 January, 2022
The Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2 is a US government standard that defines minimum security requirements for cryptographic modules in information technology products and systems.
Azure Kubernetes (AKS) allows you to create Linux-based node pools with FIPS 140-2 enabled. Deployments running on FIPS-enabled node pools can use those cryptographic modules to provide increased security and help meet security controls as part of FedRAMP compliance.
For more details on FIPS 140-2, see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/compliance/offerings/offering-fips-140-2
