Cisco 2621XM and Cisco 2651XM Modular
Access Routers with AIM-VPN/EP FIPS 140-2
Non-Proprietary Security Policy
Level 2 Validation
Version 1.3
June 2, 2004
Introduction
This is the non-proprietary Cryptographic Module Security Policy for the 2621XM and 2651XM
Modular Access Routers with AIM-VPN/EP. This security policy describes how the 2621XM and
2651XM routers (Hardware Version: 2621XM, 2651XM; AIM-VPN/EP: Hardware Version 1.0, Board
Version B0; Firmware Version: IOS 12.3(3d)) meet the security requirements of FIPS 140-2, and how to
operate the 2621XM and 2651XM routers in a secure FIPS 140-2 mode. This policy was prepared as
part of the Level 2 FIPS 140-2 validation of the 2621XM and 2651XM routers.
FIPS 140-2 (Federal Information Processing Standards Publication 140-2—Security Requirements for
Cryptographic Modules) details the U.S. Government requirements for cryptographic modules. More
information about the FIPS 140-2 standard and validation program is available on the NIST website at
http://csrc.nist.gov/cryptval/.
