FIPS 140-2 Compliant

Few other changes to make to add a bit of extra security to the firewall. 

conf t
mode single
no firewall transparent
crashinfo console disable
fips enable
no service password-recovery
config-register 0x1001

Where :
  • mode single: prevents you from running systems in virtual mode, and having more then one fw in the chassis.
  • no service password-recovery: makes it so that when you do a password recovery, it automatically blows away the current running config.  (so that no one else gets to see what it is.)
