A.3 Application Requested Tests

The application may requests tests at any time by means of the GCRYCTL_SELFTEST control command. Note that using these tests is not FIPS conform: Although Libgcrypt rejects all application requests for services while running self-tests, it does not ensure that no other operations of Libgcrypt are still being executed. Thus, in FIPS mode an application requesting self-tests needs to power-cycle Libgcrypt instead.

When self-tests are requested, Libgcrypt runs all the tests it does during power-up as well as a few extra checks as described below.
