(standard)
(FIPS) United States Government technical standards published by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). NIST develops FIPS when there are compelling Federal government requirements such as for security and interoperability but no acceptable industry standards or solutions.

Computer-related products bought by the US Government must conform to FIPS.
