NIST FDCC Compliance with Adobe Acrobat and Reader

The Federal Desktop Core Configuration (FDCC) is a list of security settings managed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) for US government computers. The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has issued instructions to agencies to use these settings with a vendor’s self-assertion of desktop applications working with FDCC settings.

Adobe Acrobat 9.0 and Adobe Reader 9.0 have been tested and meet the NIST FDCC compliance guidelines according to the testing process provided in OMB memo m08‐22.

For details on compliance testing, check out the posting on the Security Matters blog.
