FIPS canister questions

Hi everyone.

We are running CentOS 7.8 and the OpenSSL that comes with it, 'OpenSSL 1.0.2k-fips'. We have built the latest FOM 2.0 and now we want to incorporate the output of the FOM build into our CentOS 7.8 system. So we have two questions.

  1.  How do we install the output of the FOM build (fipscanister.o et al) on the CentOS system such that the existing OpenSSL will start using the new canister?

  1.  How do we verify that libcrypto is indeed using the new fipscanister.o?

Thanks in advance.
