I'm not aware of any activity to re-valdiate FIPS for Windows targets at
this time. The last validation on Windows that I'm aware of was in 2009
, covering 32-bit Windows XP SP3, according to some of the certificates
at NIST CSRC .
It's possible that the previous validation will be sufficient for newer
versions of Windows, depending on the context in which you need to use a
validated module. CMVP would be the best source of guidance on that.
