Overview, Goals, and Scope


The DoDIN APL is an acquisition decision support tool for Department of Defense (DoD) organizations interested in procuring equipment to support their missions. The DoDIN APL process results in a consolidated list of products that have met DoD cybersecurity and interoperation certification requirements.


The purpose of DoDIN APL compliance is to qualify eligible Fortinet products for sale to DoD organizations.
