I am upgrading code from OpenSSL 1.0.2 to 3.0. We are programmatically loading and unloading FIPS and have separate module code for FIPS module.
I have written code for main() and self_test_cb() as per the following manual-
/docs/manmaster/man7/fips_module.html (<>
/docs/manmaster/man7/OSSL_PROVIDER-FIPS.html (<>

Can I get a step wise information that what I need to do next while coding the complete FIPS module? Any design docs for FIPS 3.0 module would be great help.

Thanking you in anticipation,
Sanjeev Kumar Mishra
