Issue #6943 has been updated by Vit Ondruch.


Using internal implementation is just hiding the issue. I don't think this would be acceptable solution for FIPS certification, what would be the point then? It is quite easy to generate colliding hashes these days. It might not be that critical for PStore though ...

Feature #6943: pstore in FIPS mode

Is there any chance to make PStore compatible with FIPS mode? PStore is using MD5 for data checksum, but MD5 is unsupported algorithm in FIPS mode unfortunately. It would be easy to use different hash algorithm, but I am afraid that backward compatibility would be lost. Thank you.
