The only real-life implementation I know about using the flag and
actually implementing FIPS is the MS .NET framework. Any application
making use of functionality in the System.Security.Cryptography
namespace will be limited to algorithms allowed in FIPS if the setting
is enabled. You can try this by enabling FIPS on Windows and playing
Terraria, for example. In this case, the application depends on FIPS
mode being disabled.
