This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Which Cisco router? What IOS version? There are so many to choose from. – Michael Hampton Jul 30 '12 at 6:24

From this page, it seems that a lot of routers can be FIPS-compliant.

It may require a special IOS version, and tamper evidence labels (to install on chassis, memory and interface cards).
