I found a post in which you mentioned:

"FIPS compliance is something you get by going through a very particular governmental certification process, which normally does not deal with generic standards, but instead deals with specific and particular implementations.  Standards are described, but the compliance aspect is to show that a particular implementation meets that standard."

Would you by chance have links to any government agencies or test labs web sites that describe the FIPS certification process in more detail?
