Learn more about FIPS certification and CIS compliance:

There are few Linux distributions that undergo the FIPS certification process, and even fewer with certified images available for production use in multi-cloud environments. Canonical has built integrated services to easily enable FIPS certified or compliant modules for Ubuntu 18.04 and 16.04 LTS releases, as well as tooling to assist in hardening and auditing Ubuntu instances to meet CIS compliance benchmarks. These certified components enable operating environments under compliance regimes like FedRAMP, HIPAA, PCI and ISO.
