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.

 

http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/incubator-lucene-net-user/200903.mb
ox/%3c006101c99f4e$7bdd3590$7397a0b0$@rendelmann@gmx.net%3e

https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENENET-175

 

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
exception.

 

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

 Or

 is this problem specific to Lucene.Net?

 

What do you think?
