Certes CFNC Achieves Common Criteria

Corsec would like to congratulate our partner, Certes Networks, Inc. (Certes), for completing the Common Criteria (CC) certification process on their CryptoFlow Net Creator (CFNC) with CEP.

To achieve this milestone, Certes partnered with Corsec, completing the certification under the Italian scheme at an EAL4+. For more information on the validation and to find additional details on the CFNC certification, visit the CC Certified Products List.

About Common Criteria

Common Criteria (CC) is an internationally recognized set of guidelines (ISO 15408), which define a common framework for evaluating security features and capabilities of Information Technology security products. The standard consists of several predetermined evaluation assurance levels, each one more stringent than the last. Common Criteria allows vendors to have their products tested against a chosen level by an independent third-party testing laboratory. The Common Criteria Mutual Recognition Agreement (CCRA) is a pact, which was designed to allow all evaluations up to an evaluation assurance level (EAL) 2, to be recognized by all participating countries, regardless of where the evaluation was completed. There are currently 30 countries involved in the CCRA, including the United States and Canada, with others that follow unofficially such as the EU.

The U.S. government mandates Common Criteria certification of security products for federal purchases. The National Information Assurance Acquisition Policy, NSTISSP No. 11, requires agencies to purchase only those commercial security products that have met specified third-party assurance requirements and have been tested by an accredited national laboratory.
