InformationThe information system _IS_ configured to implement approved cryptography to protect information.
Use of weak or untested encryption algorithms undermines the purposes of utilizing encryption to protect data. The operating system must implement cryptographic modules that adhere to the higher standards that have been tested, validated, and approved by the federal government.
macOS Big Sur has been submitted to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and is in review for the cryptographic module for FIPS 140-3 validation.
SolutionThe technology inherently meets this requirement. No fix is required.
