I noticed there is no mention of FIPS as I am seeing events now related to that and I am wondering how to configure the settings.

mshubaly --

FIPS 140-2 support is announced in the Release Notes document. There is no configuration to be done, thus the lack of mention in this user guide. As I understand it, the 8.1.0 Windows agent (currently this is Window-only) detects whether a host is in FIPs mode, and if it is, the agent runs in a FIPS-compliant way, transparently with the exception of the event. The event that determines whether the agent started in FIPS mode or not is listed in the new Events Guide​ (with minimal explanation, certainly).

I'm not the guy for deeper technical explanations if you need them -- in that case I'd recommend using the Ask a Question About CB Protection link on the User eXchange home page. Hope this helps.
