At this current time there is no mapping to the JAFAN. We originally mapped
to the DCID 6/3 and have since also created mappings against the NIST SP

We have not done any thorough testing on Fedora so I cannot confirm that it
will work as intended. If you are using Fedora for cost issues you might
want to investigate CentOS http://www.centos.org/. CentOS is much closer to
RHEL and while we have not done any thorough testing on it either, it should
work with only minimal changes.

I am not aware of anyone attempting to accredit a system running Fedora. In
my experience with certification the operating system must have a support
package from a vendor and Fedora does not offer that as an option.
