I am doing some testing on a Cisco Aironet 1250 and need to be sure it is FIPS 140-2 compliant and to what level. I see some references on the Cisco web site, but am not sure I am seeing the correct information.  Can an expert point me to a link which shows if this device is FIPS  140-2 compliant?

Product/Model Number: AIR-AP1252AG-A-K9  
 Top Assembly Serial Number: FTX1537900R  
 System Software Filename: c1250-k9w7-tar.124-10b.JDA3  
 System Software Version: 12.4(10b)JDA3  
 Bootloader Version: 12.4(18a)JA1

Thanks for the quick  response. I see 2 items on that page that reference the AP1252 but the software versions are something like 7.x,  It appears mine is 12.4.  Are these totally different operating systems?  So do you think my unit is on the list based on the versions of software?

Thanks!

I believe the link refers Light-weight APs Only - Yours is an Autonomous AP

Best to Call Cisco to confirm the Autonomous AP's aren't FIPS certified - from the list they dont look to be

Although you can convert Autonomous to Light-weight AP's (but would need a Wireless LAN Controller) again a question for Cisco - Will conversion process break certification?
