    • Release Notes Summary:
      This release adds support for the `fips_enabled` fact on Windows. The check examines the contents of `HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/System/CurrentControlSet/Control/Lsa/FipsAlgorithmPolicy/Enabled`. If the returned value is 1, it means that FIPS mode is enabled.

      Description

      This fact will enable checking for windows platforms running in FIPS mode. It could be used to adjust certain agent or acceptance test behaviors at run time.
      Presently this would only return a boolean indicating whether the platform is running in FIPS mode or not. Additional FIPS relevant information may be added in future.
