NOFORN is a distribution (or releasability) criteria for US classified material, meaning "no foreign nationals." It is not a classification in and of itself; instead, it's used in conjunction with the actual classification of the document.

For example, a document could be classified 'Secret-- NOFORN', meaning the actual classification of the document is secret, and the information cannot be shared with foreign nationals.

Abbreviated NF. It contrasts with RELTO (releasable to, i.e. other countries).
That document is classified Secret NOFORN, better hide it before the British guy gets here!
