Notes from the field: Supporting the U.S. DOD’s Southern Command during the Haitian earthquake relief program

Guest contribution from Philip Adzima

Hi – Philip Adzima here. I work as a technical account manager for Adobe, focused on providing product solutions to customers using Adobe Connect. Along with people from government and service agencies all over the world, I had the privilege of participating in my own small, but personally memorable, way to the humanitarian relief effort following the devastating earthquake that ravaged Haiti on January 12, 2010. This is a recap of my week on the ground in Miami supporting military and aid personnel using Defense Connect Online (DCO), which continue to be mission-critical communication tools for Operation Unified Response–the Haitian relief effort being led by the U.S. Southern Command (SOUTHCOM). SOUTHCOM is part of the U.S. Department of Defense. Technology aside, it was amazing to witness firsthand the commitment and dedication of so many people working to help others in need.

DoD Certifies Acrobat and Reader 9

Posted by

The United States Department of Defense Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC) has certified both Adobe Acrobat and Adobe Reader version 9.

Many programs supporting the Department of Defense missions require security services, such as authentication, confidentiality, non-repudiation, and access control. The JITC certification demonstrates compliance with DoD policy as well as showing confidence that the applications are properly and securely using Public Key Infrastructure.

Here are the direct links for certification of Adobe Acrobat and Adobe Reader

Certification was also achieved for Acrobat and Reader version 7 and version 8.
