Getting error when FIPS is enabled

We are using SmartInspect.Net Libraries for logging, getting below error when FIPS is enabled.

This implementation is not part of the Windows Platform FIPS validated cryptographic algorithms.


  1. The log file is generated but nothing is written. (0kb)
  2. If we disable encryption and FIPS enabled it works as expected.
  3. It throws above error when encryption is set and FIPS enabled.
  4. If we enable encryption and FIPS Live logging works as expected.

SmartInspect Library Version

What encryption algorithm is currently used and can we change it. Is there any workaround for this? Please help.
