Check the OpenSSL Security Policy at
https://www.openssl.org/docs/fips/SecurityPolicy-2.0.10.pdf. The table
of support platforms starts on page 10 and runs through page 14.

It may be supported (entries 68 and 69), but I think you need to match
the board to the operational environment that was validated. Its not
obvious to me which one that was.

Also, you need a Ubuntu 13 image, and not a Debian image. I'm not
aware of any Ubuntu images for BBB. (Also see
http://beagleboard.org/latest-images and

Finally, I can't really tell if the processor is part of the validated
operational environment based on the Debian 8.2 4g-flash image. The
processor is only listed as AM33XX, while the validated one is AM335x:
