“JITC certified,” you say…what’s that? JITC stands for the US Department of Defense’s Joint Interoperability Test Command, which carries out extensive work on software and other systems intended to be used by the US military for mission critical purposes.
In this specific instance, Adobe Acrobat and Reader X have been certified by JITC for their compliance with the DoD’s application requirements for Public Key Enabled services, e.g digital signatures. The testing included intensive, comprehensive evaluations of Acrobat and Reader’s capabilities in:
- Certificate operations
- Signature and certificate status validation
- Path processing and validation
- Configuration and documentation
Adobe is proud to note that we have consistently been certified for JITC compliance in every version of Adobe Acrobat and Reader back to version 7 back in 2006.
