         Federal Information Processing Standard (NIST, USA)

From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

  Federal Information Processing Standards
      (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.
