Symptom


When you try to run ASP.Net 2.0 on a FIPS enabled server you may receive an error similar to the following:

This implementation is not part of the Windows Platform FIPS validated cryptographic algorithms.
Cause


ASP .Net 2.0 cannot run on FIPS enabled machines due to use of uncertified cryptographic providers.  This is a problem for the Web console component of Operations Manager 2007.
Resolution


To work around this issue, modify the configuration in the Web.config file as follows:
  1. In a text editor such as Notepad, open the Web.config file.
  2. In the Web.config file, locate the <system.web> section.
  3. In the system.web section add the following <machineKey>:


<machineKey decryption=”3DES” />

 

4.       Save the Web.config file.
