About Common Criteria Certification
Common Criteria for IT Security Evaluations (also known as ISO 15408), was developed by the national security organizations of the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, France, Germany and The Netherlands. It provides a broad range of evaluation criteria for many types of commercial and nationally sensitive government-use IT security products. Common Criteria evaluations involve formal rigorous analysis and testing to examine security aspects of a product or system. Extensive testing activities involve a comprehensive and formally repeatable process, confirming that the security product functions as claimed by the manufacturer. Security weaknesses and potential vulnerabilities are specifically examined during an evaluation. The U.S., Canada, France, Germany, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom and nearly a dozen other nations recognize the standards as a methodology to evaluate and validate security solutions.
