In FIPS HA setup when the FIPS private handle of x.key on Device A is a FIPS public handle of x.key on Device B, Device B (the HA peer) gets the configuration from Device A and operates as if the handle is correct because the modulus matches, but it actually is the public-handle and not the private-handle.
With this configuration, when the device fails over, it can lead to traffic failure. This occurs because TMM tries to use the public-handle when it should be using the private-handle.
FIPS HA setup and FIPS private handle of x.key on Device A is a FIPS public handle of x.key on Device B.
FIPS HA peer verifies the FIPS handle type to confirm that it uses only the private FIPS handles.
