Subject FIPS compliance?
Date Tue, 10 Mar 2009 19:10:56 GMT
Hi All,


There is a discussion about FIPS compliance(using MD5 Hash algorithm in
FSDirectory) in Lucene.Net.


In fact, if the system wide policy
(HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa\FIPSAlgorithmPolicy) is set, then
trying to use MD5 (which is not FIPS compliant) to compute the hash causes


So, Is a change in Lucene possible to use SHA1 in computing hash for FIPS
compliance (I can see the backward compatibility problems)


 is this problem specific to Lucene.Net?


What do you think?
