General availability: FIPS enabled node pool in Azure Kubernetes

Published date: January 19, 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
