NIST Public Key Interoperability Test Suite Results

Adobe Acrobat and Adobe Reader version 7 have demonstrated complaince with the Public Key Interoperability Test Suite (PKITS) developed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) along with DigitalNet and NSA.

PKITS is a comprehensive X.509 path validation test suite designed to cover most of the features specified in X.509 and RFC 3280.

Because path validation is natively included in Adobe Acrobat and Adobe Reader, digital signatures are able to consistently validate across operating systems and versions. The Adobe compliance tests may be viewed in the following locations for Windows, Macintosh, and Linux.
