Full disk encryption

I run Ubuntu on a laptop that I use at work. Because we work with federal agencies, we have been directed that our laptops must be encrypted using Full Disk Encryption(FDE). Can anyone suggest a FDE package that supports Linux and meets the requirements of FIPS 140-2 and HSPD 12?
