Names of Products: Mathematica 9.0, Wolfram CDF Player 9.0, Wolfram Player Pro 9.0
For More Information: Contact compliance@wolfram.com

Mathematica 9.0, Wolfram CDF Player 9.0, and Wolfram Player Pro 9.0 are developed and distributed by Wolfram Research, Inc., 100 Trade Center Drive, Champaign, IL 61820-7237; phone 217-398-0700; fax 217-398-0747.

The following requirements are based on the memos "Implementation of Commonly Accepted Security Configuration for Windows Operating Systems," M-07-11 (March 22, 2007) and M-07-18 (June 1, 2007), requiring compliance with NIST security configurations.

  1. The provider of information technology shall certify applications are fully functional and operate correctly as intended using the Federal Desktop Core Configuration (FDCC). This includes Internet Explorer 7 configured to operate on Windows XP and Vista (in Protected Mode on Vista).

    Mathematica 9.0, Wolfram CDF Player 9.0, and Wolfram Player Pro 9.0 are fully functional and operate correctly as intended using the FDCC, including Internet Explorer 7 on Windows XP and Vista.

  2. The standard installation, operation, maintenance, update, and/or patching of software shall not alter the configuration settings from the approved FDCC configuration. The information technology should also use the Windows Installer Service for installation to the default "program files" directory and should be able to silently install and uninstall.

    Mathematica 9.0, Wolfram CDF Player 9.0, and Wolfram Player Pro 9.0 do not alter configuration settings from the approved FDCC configuration. The Windows Installer Service is used to silently install and uninstall Mathematica 9.0, Wolfram CDF Player 9.0, and Wolfram Player Pro 9.0.

  3. Applications designed for normal end users shall run in the standard user context without elevated system administration privileges.

    Mathematica 9.0, Wolfram CDF Player 9.0, and Wolfram Player Pro 9.0 run as intended under standard user privileges without requiring elevated system administration privileges.
