[openssl-users] FIPS test parse error?

One more item of note:

The code appears to be erroring out  on the keyword SEED.

Looking at the source code there appears to be no provision to accept that word, hence the parse error.


We are testing our FIPS implementation which is based on openssl-1.0.2a and openssl-fips-2.0.9.

We are executing tests on the target machine (which doesn't support running perl scripts so we cannot run fipsalgtest.pl)

that are included in the openssl-fips-2.0.9/fips directory, using request files

provided by a test/validation company.

All tests seem to run fine (no errors output to screen) except for an RSA2 KeyGen test, during which the following error text appears:

./fips_rsagtest AlgCore/KeyGen_186-3.req /tmp/KeyGen_186-3.rsp

FATAL parse error processing line 16

FATAL RSAGTEST file processing error

Any help would be most appreciated.
Thank you,
