Question Does dm-crypt satisfy the FIPS?

Hi, all

I wanna to develop a product and try to integrate dm-crypt in it. But I am not sure whether it obey the FIPS. If I want to sell the product in american, is it a must to obey the FIPS?

If it is not ok, how about the truecrypt?

Actually I'd like to use AES with dm-crypt, and it seems AES is FIPS 197. But if the other part in dm-crypt does not obey the FIPS, then the dm-crypt could not be used totally?

FIPS certification costs an incredible amount of money and a lot of effort. So far as I know the only OSS project to undergo FIPS certification is OpenSSL. I'm not even certain if they finished it yet. If a particular implementation is FIPS certified, you can be sure it would be posted on their website. If you can't find it on their website, then that's your answer.
