Fix Recommendation

Configure OpenSSL to be FIPS compliant.

PostgreSQL uses OpenSSL for cryptographic modules. To configure OpenSSL to be FIPS 140-2 compliant, see the official RHEL Documentation: https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/6/html/Security_Guide/sect-Security_Guide-Federal_Standards_And_Regulations-Federal_Information_Processing_Standard.html

For more information on configuring PostgreSQL to use SSL, see supplementary content APPENDIX-G.

Check Contents

First, as the system administrator, run the following to see if FIPS is enabled:

$ cat /proc/sys/crypto/fips_enabled

If fips_enabled is not 1, this is a finding.
