Does FIPS 140-2 allow using MD5 for checksum


This Content is from Stack Overflow. Question asked by Shreyas

I am using MD5 for checksums. My software is FIPS 140-2 compliant and it doesn’t throw any error / exception when I use MD5 for checksum. Where can I find a documentation which says FIPS 140-2 allows using MD5 for checksum.
