    This publication is intended to assist organizations in understanding the basics of application whitelisting, as well as the planning and implementation for whitelisting technologies throughout the security deployment lifecycle.

    An application whitelist is a list of applications and application components (libraries, configuration files, etc.) that are authorized for use in an organization. Application whitelisting technologies use whitelists to control which applications are permitted to execute on a host. This helps to stop the execution of malware, unlicensed software, and other unauthorized software.
