[openssl-users] HMAC-SHA1-96 in FIPS

I am using the Openssl-1.0.2 with openssl-fips-2.0.9 and have a question.

In the FIPS-198-1 document, Chapter 5 discusses truncation with MACs.


I believe HMAC-SHA1-96 falls under this category, but I do not see its specifically  listed in Table 4a(Approved Algorithms) of the OpenSSL FIPS 140-2 Security Policy document.

Is it considered approved for use with FIPs?
