I followed your procedure, and this time it actually looks like it worked. =
I am confused at what I need to do now to use this build.

I ran this command: ~\apps\openssl version
It returned: OpenSSL 0.9.7j-fips-dev XX xxx XXXX

Is this the expected result? Do I need to then build another version of Op=
enSSL and link to this one somehow, or is this a usable FIPS version?

My ultimate goal is to create a key and certificate request using a FIPS ve=
rsion of OpenSSL and then somehow use OpenSSL as my Tomcat 6 SSLEngine. Cu=
rrently I have no idea how to accomplish any of this.

Any help you can provide is much appreciated.

Thank you,

I started with a fresh installed and updated instance of Windows XP Pro S=
P2 and installed a the version of MingW and MSYS as specified in the docs. =
What else was I supposed to do and how was I supposed to configure the env=

I've just gone through this process here. I've done the following:

Download MinGW-5.1.3.exe from SourceForge.
Donwload MSYS-1.0.10.exe from SourceForge.

Run MingW-5.1.3.exe. Select "download and install" from first Dialog. Selec=
"current version". When it asks for a list of components select "MinGW base
tools", "g++ compiler" and "MinGW make". It should install successfully.

Run MSYS-1.0.10.exe and when the post install window comes up tell it where
you installed MinGW.

Select menu option MingW->MSYS->msys


tar xvzf /path/to/openssl-fips-1.1.2.tar.gz

cd openssl-fips-1.1.2

../config fips
make install

The reason for the process is that it has to follow the Unix build to the
letter for the 1.1.X FIPS module.

For the (not yet validated) 1.2 Module you can use VC++ for the whole thing=
