$openssl version


OpenSSL 1.0.2j-fips

My FIPS module version is openssl-fips-2.0.13

$OPENSSL_FIPS=1 openssl md5 /dev/null


Error setting digest md5
140066569107136:error:060A80A3:digital envelope routines:FIPS_DIGESTINIT:disabled for fips:fips_md.c:180:

$OPENSSL_FIPS=1 openssl sha1 /dev/null


SHA1(/dev/null)= da39a3ee5e6b4b0d3255bfef95601890afd80709

Do that appears to be working correctly.

Which versions of the FIPS module and OpenSSL are you using?

In the FIPS capable OpenSSL try this:

OPENSSL_FIPS=1 openssl md5 /dev/null
OPENSSL_FIPS=1 openssl sha1 /dev/null

Please give details of any errors you get.
