 The cipher suites can, of course, be a subset of the above.
+
+General: All crypto should be done via OpenSSL (or another FIPS
+certified package). Any external packages using crypto must enable
+FIPS mode in OpenSSL. The OpenSSL FIPS security policy must be
+followed.
+
+Note that because Apache sets FIPS mode in OpenSSL, other libraries or
+modules using OpenSSL that coexist may exhibit unexpected behaviour
+because of the restrictions FIPS mode imposes.
+
+In particular, only DES, AES, RSA, DSA/DSS and SHA-1 can be
+used. There is a special exception that permits the use of MD5 within
+TLS, but not elsewhere.
