I don't know anything about when it is a good idea or not, however, I
have been told (by a person I trust to be right) that FIPS 140-2 is
obsolete, in that it requires certain features that are now known to
not be your best bet for good security.

Sorry, I cannot be more specific, that is all I know on the topic.
