Is FIPS-validated Crypto exposed to Knox library or platform?

If someone wants to create a 3rd-party application that utilizes Knox libs, is there a way to have access to a FIPS-validated crypto engine? For instance, I'd like to be able to perform something simple like generate key pair, via a FIPS-validated crypto engine. I see that the Knox certificates show FIPS approval for cyrpto modules, however I'm not sure if that's only utilized within the Knox apps.

If I simply utilize the platform provided Java.security library, is that utilizing the Knox FIPS-validated crypto module?
