In this approach, communities of interest form around technology types which in turn develop protection profiles that define the evaluation methodology for the technology type. As well as the Common Criteria standard, there is also a sub-treaty level Common Criteria MRA Mutual Recognition Arrangementwhereby each party thereto recognizes evaluations against the Common Criteria standard done by other parties.

In Septembera majority of members of the CCRA produced a vision statement whereby mutual recognition of CC evaluated products will be lowered to EAL 2 Including augmentation with flaw remediation. Common Criteria certification cannot guarantee security, but it can ensure that claims about the security attributes of the evaluated product were independently verified.

Based on this and other assumptions, which may not be realistic for the common use of general-purpose operating systems, the claimed security functions of the Windows products are evaluated.

In other words, Common Criteria provides assurance that the process of specification, implementation and evaluation of a computer security product has been conducted in a rigorous and standard and repeatable manner at 1540-82 level that is commensurate with the target environment for use.

Common Criteria is very generic; it does not directly provide a list of product security requirements or features for specific classes of products: Instead, national standards, like FIPS give the specifications for cryptographic modules, and various standards specify the cryptographic algorithms in use.

In other words, products evaluated against a Common Criteria standard exhibit a clear chain of evidence that the process of specification, implementation, and evaluation has been conducted in a rigorous and standard manner. The UK has also produced a number of alternative schemes when the timescales, costs and overheads of mutual recognition have been found to be impeding the operation of the market:.


ISO standards by standard number. In a research ido, computer specialist David A. This page was last edited on 6 Decemberat CC was produced by unifying these pre-existing standards, predominantly so that companies selling computer products for the government market mainly for Defence or Intelligence use would only need isp have them evaluated against one set of standards. There is some concern that this may have a negative impact on mutual recognition.

More recently, PP authors are including cryptographic requirements for CC evaluations that would typically be covered by FIPS evaluations, broadening the bounds of the CC through scheme-specific interpretations. Some national evaluation schemes are phasing out EAL-based evaluations and only accept products for evaluation that claim strict conformance with an approved PP. The TOE is applicable to networked or distributed environments only if the entire network operates under the 14508-2 constraints and resides within a single management domain.

Key elements of the Vision included:.

Retrieved from ” https: Failure by the vendor to take either of these steps would result in involuntary withdrawal of the product’s certification by the certification body of the country in which the product was evaluated. This is possible because the process of obtaining a Common Criteria certification allows a vendor to restrict the analysis to certain security features and to make certain assumptions about the operating environment and the strength of threats faced by the product in that environment.

Archived from the original on August 1, Computer security standards Evaluation of computers ISO standards. This will be achieved through technical working groups developing worldwide PPs, and as yet a transition period has not been fully determined.

List of International Electrotechnical Commission standards. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Wheeler suggested that the Common Criteria process discriminates against izo and open-source software FOSS -centric organizations and development models.

Whether you run Microsoft Windows in the precise evaluated configuration or not, you should apply Microsoft’s security patches for the vulnerabilities in Windows as they continue to appear. Various Microsoft Windows versions, including Windows Server and Windows XPhave been certifiedbut security patches to address security vulnerabilities are still getting published by Microsoft for these Windows systems.


Major changes to the Arrangement include:. Thus they should only be considered secure in the assumed, specified circumstances, also known as the evaluated configuration. Characteristics of these organizations were examined and presented at ICCC It is currently in version 3. In contrast, much FOSS software is produced using modern agile paradigms.

Additionally, the CC recognizes a need to limit the scope of evaluation in order to provide cost-effective and useful security certifications, such that evaluated products are examined to a level of detail specified by the assurance level or PP.

Webarchive template wayback links Interlanguage link template link number. Evaluations at EAL5 and above tend to involve the security requirements of the host nation’s government. Canada is in the process of phasing out EAL-based evaluations. The evaluation process also tries to establish the level of confidence that may be placed in the product’s security features through quality assurance processes:.

Archived from the original PDF on April 17, Alternatively, the vendor should re-evaluate the product to include the application of patches to fix the security vulnerabilities within the evaluated configuration. Further, this vision indicates a move away from 15480-2 levels altogether and evaluations will be confined to conformance with Protection Profiles that have no stated assurance level. Although some have argued that both paradigms do not align well, [6] others have attempted to reconcile both paradigms.

Common Criteria certification is sometimes specified for IT 1540-82. This shows both the limitation and strength of an evaluated configuration.

Common Criteria – Wikipedia

Vendors can then implement or make claims about the security attributes of their products, and testing laboratories can evaluate the products to determine if they actually meet the claims.

There are no security requirements that address the need to trust external systems or the communications links to such systems. Objections outlined in the article include:. 154082- standards containing, e.
