FIPS 140-2 compliance and OpenSSL

We are considering ScyllaDB Enterprise and want to understand your FIPS 140-2 compliance. For both system and table data, can you use different algorithms that are supported by OpenSSL in a file block encryption scheme?”

Yes, OpenSSL for both encryptions. Once enabled, all communication between the client and the node is transmitted over TLS/SSL. The libraries used by Scylla for OpenSSL are FIPS 140-2 certified.

See more in the documentation about client-to-node encryption and node-to-node encryption.

ScyllaDB security features, including encryption, are covered in this ScyllaDB University lesson.
