We've definitely talked about this and there isn't a clear programmatic
means to achieve this.
Of course, we do log which specific version of the libraries that we build
and test against in our certification report. So, those could be used to
compare a running system against the certification report.
Yes, I also understand that sometimes the desire is to be able to show that
CentOS or Fedora is NOT FIPS certified verses RHEL. Of course, that assumes
that the RHEL you are running on IS actually certified.
