It appears that there's no FIPS support in the OpenSSL functionality, correct me 
if I'm wrong. When PHP is operating as a SAPI under Apache2, any calls to 
RSA_public_decrypt causes the following error:

SSL Library Error: 67674254 error:0408A08E:rsa 
routines:RSA_public_decrypt:operation not allowed in fips mode

This is due to the fact that PHP is calling RSA_public_decrypt directly, which 
isn't allowed when Apache is operating in FIPS mode (see SSLFIPS directive in the 
Apache2 documentation). The workaround is to use the EVP_Verify* functions in the 
OpenSSL library - at least that's what I've been reading.

Apache 2.2.17
PHP 5.3.6
OpenSSL 0.9.8r w/OpenSSL FIPS 1.2.2 module
