How to use FIPS for 16.04??

Asked by Armando Garcia on 2019-10-15

I'm very confused.

I'm following the STIG Manual and it asked me to use FIPS 140-2 Certified Modules in the Ubuntu 16.04 OS.

All I am trying to do is comply with the STIG Manual but upon purchasing the Ubuntu Advantage Essential, I'm getting lost.

Do I need a PPA? For what?
I JUST NEED TO HAVE FIPS INSTALLED AND ITS GIVING ME ERRORS ON SUDO-UPDATES.

What do I need to do to get the CERTIFIED MODULES because the instructions ARE NOT VERY CLEAR.

Thanks :)

This is not a problem with the launchpad.net site itself (perhaps with something that's hosted on it), but I'm not sure where to reassign it to.

What exact instructions are you following? What exact problem are you running into? Copy and paste error messages.

I am following this guide so not sure how complicated this should be..
