FIPS 140-2 for government use

Does anyone know if FreeBSD supports any hardware security module 
(cryptoprocessor) certified for FIPS 140-2 or know if there are 
future plans to do this?

My company has a product based on FreeBSD that wants to incorporate a 
FIPS 140-2 certified cryptoprocessor, required for use in the 
government but all the boards on the market are developed and 
FIPS-certifed for LInux, Solaris, AIX, etc... just NOT FreeBSD.

Surely, we're not the only FreeBSD users with this particular need?
