Standard ISO/IEC 15408, CC v3.1. Release 4
The TOE is applicable to networked or distributed environments only if the entire network operates under the same constraints and resides within a single management domain. Thus they should only be considered secure in the assumed, specified circumstances, also known as the evaluated configuration. Uso other words, Common Criteria provides assurance that the process of specification, implementation and evaluation of a computer security product has been 15408–2 in a rigorous and standard and repeatable manner at a level that is commensurate with the target environment for use.
It is currently in version 3. ISO standards by standard number. Archived from the original PDF on April 17, Evaluations at EAL5 and above tend 15408- involve the security requirements of the host nation’s government.
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.
This page was last edited on 6 Decemberat 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. 154082- a research paper, computer specialist David A. In Sept ofthe Isi Criteria published a Vision Statement implementing to a large extent Chris Salter’s thoughts from the previous year.
In contrast, much FOSS software is produced using modern agile paradigms.
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:. More recently, PP authors are including cryptographic requirements for CC evaluations that would typically be covered by FIPS evaluations, broadening the bounds is the CC through scheme-specific interpretations. Evaluations activities are therefore only performed to a certain depth, use of time, and resources and offer reasonable assurance for the intended environment.
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.
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. Common Criteria certification is sometimes specified for IT procurement. This will be achieved through is working groups developing worldwide PPs, and as yet a transition period has not been fully determined. Key elements of the Vision included:. There is some concern that this may have a negative impact on mutual recognition.
Retrieved from ” https: Other standards containing, e. If any of these security vulnerabilities are exploitable in the product’s evaluated configuration, the product’s Common Criteria certification should be voluntarily withdrawn by the vendor.
Standard ISO/IEC , CC v Release 4
Canada is in the process of phasing out EAL-based evaluations. Common Criteria certification cannot guarantee security, but it can ensure that claims about the security attributes of the evaluated product were independently verified. The United States currently only allows PP-based evaluations. In Septembera majority of 1508-2 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.
Archived from the original on August 1, Some national evaluation schemes are phasing out EAL-based evaluations and only accept products for sio that claim strict conformance with an approved PP. 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.
Objections outlined in the article include:. Computer security standards Evaluation of computers ISO standards. This shows both the limitation jso strength of an evaluated configuration.
Although some have argued that both paradigms do not align well,  others have attempted to reconcile both paradigms. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Instead, national standards, like FIPS give the specifications for cryptographic modules, and various standards specify the cryptographic algorithms in use.
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. Major changes to the Arrangement include:.
Wheeler suggested that the Common Criteria process discriminates against free and open-source software FOSS -centric organizations and development models.
Common Criteria – Wikipedia
Characteristics of these organizations were examined and presented at ICCC 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.
