According to “zdnet”, On Wednesday, Robert Hoover wrote on the official Windows Phone blog that Windows Phone 8 has reached an "important new security milestone" which could make the platform a prospect for governments and organizations that require high security and encryption on their networks and communication platforms.
The U.S. government has granted the platform the FIPS 140-2 (.pdf) security accreditation. FIPS 140-2 is used to scrutinize and assign a level of security to devices including tablets and smartphones which use cryptographic algorithms to protect sensitive data stored within.
In total, Windows Phone 8 has received FIPS 140-2 validation for nine cryptographic certificates. The full list of Windows 8 Phone accredited certificates are below:
  • Kernel Mode Cryptographic Primitives Library (CNG.SYS)
  • Cryptographic Primitives Library (BCRYPTPRIMITIVES.DLL)
  • Enhanced DSS and Diffie-Hellman Cryptographic Provider (DSSENH.DLL)
  • Enhanced Cryptographic Provider (RSAENH.DLL)
  • Boot Manager
  • BitLocker Windows OS Loader (WINLOAD)
  • Code Integrity (CI.DLL)
  • BitLocker Windows Resume (WINRESUME)
  • BitLocker Dump Filter (DUMPFVE.SYS)
The accreditation was awarded by the Cryptographic Module Validation Program. In addition to the announcement, Microsoft has also updated its Windows Phone 8 Security Guide to cover policy and EAS firewall settings.
