Successful certification to Common Criteria

Common Criteria (CC) – worldwide catalogue of criteria for IT security

The "Common Criteria for Information Technology Security Evaluation" represent a uniform international standard to guarantee a high level of IT security. In practice, the requirements in terms of trustworthiness are summarised in the so-called Evaluation Assurance Level (EAL) and, depending on circumstances, evaluated in a 7-stage security model (EAL 1 = functionally tested to EAL 7 = formally verified development and tested). Defined evaluation methods and documentation are used to test and assess the security of IT systems, products and applications.
