FIPS Compliance and openssl errors with luci

Solution Unverified - Updated -


  • We are required to enable FIPS on all servers. When we do this, it breaks the luci interface. We get an 'Internal Server Error' when trying to connect. Disabling FIPS immediately resolves this. The following error appears in the luci log file: ValueError: error:060800A0:digital envelope routines:EVP_DigestInit_ex:unknown cipher
