So I was at one of my live events here a few weeks ago and we were talking about bitlocker drive encryption. The question arose as to whether Bitlocker was FIPS 140-2 compliant. At the time I was not sure that it was approved in FIPS 140-2. I went back and did a little searching to verify the date of certification. I am happy to officially answer that Yes bitlocker is FIPS 140-2 compliant and was certified in 2008. You can read about the compliance certification here.
As always I am a huge fan of Bitlocker drive encryption.
