Description
Apple's OS X Lion (v10.7) security services are now built on a newer 'Next Generation Cryptography' platform and does not use the CDSA/CSP module previously validated. Apple is re-validating the same CDSA/CSP module under OS X Lion to provide validation solely for third-party applications.
Tested Configuration(s)
  • Mac OS X 10.7.0 (single-user mode)
