Version
Comments
ESX VMWare Server
3.5
The ESX platform is Linux based and requires x86 based servers; therefore the ESX servers are predominantly IBM xSeries class machines.

Caution: For best performance, we recommend installing the database on a physical server machine, not a virtual system such as VMWare.



FDCC compliance

The Federal Desktop Core Configuration (FDCC) is a security configuration mandated by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to standardize the configuration of desktop computers used by U.S. Government agencies. The desktop components of Rational Quality Manager have been tested to verify compliance with the FDCC under Microsoft Windows XP and Microsoft Windows Vista. There is one exception to this as follows:

Any work item statistics viewlet included in a web dashboard will not be viewable without installing the Adobe Flash player remotely through Internet Explorer. Installation of the Flash player will not be possible with the Internet Explorer security settings required by FDCC. To avoid this problem, the work item statistics viewlet can be configured to display its data in the table format instead of in the graph format.





FIPS-140-2 certification

Rational Quality Manager uses the FIPS 140-2 approved cryptographic provider(s); IBMJCEFIPS (certificate 376) and/or IBMJSSEFIPS (certificate 409) and/or IBM Cryptography for C (ICC) (certificate 384) for cryptography. The certificates are listed on the NIST web site. There are two exceptions to this as follows:

  1. You import from a Subversion repository and in doing so, connect to a Subversion server using SVN+SSH authentication.
  2. You install a Subversion client for Eclipse into the Eclipse instance that supports Rational Quality Manager, in order to link Subversion revisions to work items and in doing so, you connect to a Subversion server using SVN+SSH authentication.
