Operations Dashboard support for FIPS enabled Openshift Cluster

The Operations Dashboard feature cannot be deployed in Openshift Cluster that is FIPS enabled. This will impact the usage of this capability in customer environments where their security policy enforces the need for FIPS security.

    Hi Thiyagarajan,

    Just wanted to update you on this. We're looking at our Observability capabilities going forward but at the moment we do not have current plans to provide support for FIPS on Operations Dashboard.

    Hi Andy,

    The primary objective of this RFE is to allow the deployment and configuration of operations dashboard capability (that comes with cloud pak for integration) in a FIPS security enabled Red Hat Openshift container platform 4.x. On the FIPS standard I would go with the standard that RHEL and Openshift platform adheres to which as per their documentation is FIPS 140-2.

    Hi Thiyagarajan,

    Thanks for submitting this - we're looking at it and have a query on this.

    In regard to a "FIPS enabled OpenShift cluster", is there a particular FIPS standard/level that you're needing to support - for example FIPS 140-2 level 3?

    We're just wanting to make sure that we're clear on exactly what you're needing from this request.

    Best Regards,

    Andy Garratt

    Technical Product Manager, IBM Cloud Pak for Integration.
