DOD Approved site for Java download?

Anyone here know of a DOD-approved site for download of Java 6.17!? I can't seem to find it anywhere. Hell...anything downloaded from a ".mil," is good...just have to document that it came from ".mil"

Doesn't Sun (or Oracle I guess now) sign their bits?

I long for the day when IT policy makers might actually know what a digital signature is.... I understand the logic here but one might think that a digital signature is more trustworthy than a given download location. :S

Agreed. Don't worry, though...I found a creative AKO workaround. It's taken care of.
