Verifying That FIPS Self-Tests Are Taking Place



Verify that FIPS self-tests are taking place on the NFX250 device.


You can run FIPS self-tests manually by issuing the request system fips self-test command.

To view the system log file, issue the command file show /var/log/messages. The system log file displays the date and time at which each KAT was executed, the name of the test, and its status.
