I am researching how to be FIPS140-2 level 1 compliant using BitLocker encryption on Windows 7 and Windows 10. My question regarding this is such, does BitLocker encryption need to be FDE (which Windows 7 only uses), but with Windows 10 does it require FDE or is used space only allow, and second must it use AES-256 bit or is AES-128 allowed?  Can you please reference in the NIST documentation that states the requirement, please?

Thanks!


Software/Hardware used:
TPM 1.2 enabled chip on systems, Windows 7 Enterprise and Windows 10

    In Windows 10, FDE or Full Disk Encryption can be used in windows 10, while TPM or Trusted Platform Module, requires for Bit locker encryption on Windows 10. And Microsoft’s EFS encryption can never use a TPM. The new device encryption feature of windows 10 also requires a modern TPM, which is enabled for new hardware and there are specific hardware requirements for this. It only actually encrypts drive if you sign into windows with Microsoft account.
