Unsupported: FIPS Security Policy

There is a security policy called “System cryptography: Use FIPS compliant algorithms for encryption, hashing, and signing” available on Windows 10. It is disabled by default.

It is crucial that this setting remains DISABLED when running Adroit software, as Adroit software uses Windows features that are not FIPS compliant. Enabling this policy will cause instability and unexpected failures on your Adroit or MAPS SCADA

This policy is only required for machines used by the United States Federal Government. It does not add any value or additional security to Windows, it simply guarantees that any software only uses a subset of pre-approved cryptography algorithms, as is required by the US government and it agencies.
