+ - Ask Slashdot: Can We Still Trust FIPS?

Submitted by someSnarkyBastard
someSnarkyBastard (1521235) writes "It has already been widely reported that the NSA has subverted several major encryption standards but I have not seen any mention of how this affects the FIPS 140-2 standard. Can we still trust these cyphers? They have been cleared for use by the US Government for Top-Secret clearance documents; surely the government wouldn't backdoor itself right?...Right?"
