Secure Host Baseline (SHB) formally known as DoD Unified Master Gold Disk (UMGD)

July 20, 2015

DoD has developed a standard to provide common "build from" disk images that DoD Components will use as the starting point for creating gold disks to install initial software loads onto DoD computers. Currently, there are a subset of products available. There will be additional products added to the list once those products are approved.

The SHB products can be accessed using a CAC and can be downloaded by anyone at using the link for "DoD Secure Host Baseline Repository" (*Be sure to choose your DOD EMAIL CA-xx certificate).

It is the responsibility of the Component that desires to use the SHB products to obtain the appropriate DAA approval and to follow their internal policy and guidance before using it on their networks.
