Disabling FIPS Mode


As Crypto Officer, you might need to disable FIPS mode on your router or switch to return it to non-FIPS operation.

For FIPS 140-2 compliance, you must zeroize the system to remove sensitive information before disabling FIPS mode on the router or switch.

To disable FIPS mode in Junos OS:

  1. Log in to the router or switch with your Crypto Officer password if you have not already done so:
  2. The device will display below warning messages. Type in “yes” to proceed with zeroization of device.
  3. Once zeroize is done, router will reboot with “Factory-default” setting (without any configuration).
