Hello,

We used Telerik UI for Silverlight and Telerik Reporting and when we try to export the report to Excel with FIPS Algorithm Policy enabled in the server, we are getting the error "This implementation is not part of the Windows Platform FIPS validated cryptographic algorithms". We version of the Telerik components we are using are below:

UI for Silverlight:2014.3.1202.1050
Reporting:802.14.1204

I know that Telerik UI for ASP.NET AJAX officially supports the FIPS standard as stated in your documentation. Could you please confirm if the above components do not support FIPS?

Thank you,
Sherwin

Just a correction for Telerik Reporting, we are using version 8.2.14.1204.

And a follow up question, if those components do not support FIPS, do you have any plans to support it and when?

Thanks again,
Sherwin

Hello Sherwin,

The XLS rendering mechanism is not considered with FIPS. Any items as Graph, Barcode, Map which must be rendered as images will cause an error on export. Also he old Excel format (XLS) requires the check sums to be added to the file, which will prevent the successful export in your system.

We have already logged a task to revise the XLS rendering mechanism on your inquiry is counted as vote for having XLS export with FIPS enabled.

Instead you can use export in XLSX format. The check-sum mechanism is not used when you export into XLSX. Thus our suggestion is to hide the XLS export option through the start application configuration:
<configSections>
   <section name="Telerik.Reporting" type="Telerik.Reporting.Processing.Config.ReportingConfigurationSection, Telerik.Reporting, Version=x.x.x.x, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=a9d7983dfcc261be" allowLocation="true" allowDefinition="Everywhere" />
 </configSections>
 <Telerik.Reporting>
   <Extensions>
     <Render>
       <Extension name="XLS" visible="false">
       </Extension
     </Render>
   </Extensions>
 </Telerik.Reporting>
For more details about the above configuration, please check the Telerik Reporting Configuration Section and Extensions Element help articles.

Then add Telerik.Reporting.OpenXmlRendering.dll and Open XML SDK 2.0 for Microsoft Office (DocumentFormat.OpenXml.dll v.2.0.5022.0 or above) in order to enable the XLSX export.


I hope the provided information is helpful.

Can you update this with the status of having XLS export with FIPS enabled?  Has this capability be added. If so at what release level. 

Thanks,

Cecilia

Hello Cecilia,

Export in XLS will fail in FIPS enebaled environments - Excel Limitations.
Please, test exporting in XLSX format.
