SYMP-NM-000200 - Symantec ProxySG must obtain its public key certificates from an appropriate certificate policy through an approved service provider.


For user certificates, each organization obtains certificates from an approved, shared service provider, as required by OMB policy. For federal agencies operating a legacy public key infrastructure cross-certified with the Federal Bridge Certification Authority at medium assurance or higher, this Certification Authority will suffice.

NOTE: Nessus has not performed this check. Please review the benchmark to ensure target compliance.
