Danderyd, Sweden (PRWEB) October 20, 2006
We are proud to announce that atsec information security AB has received a provisional license for its Common Criteria Evaluation Facility CSEC (CSEC - Sveriges Certifieringsorgan för IT-säkerhet) for performing trial evaluations including evaluation of protection profiles, security targets, and for product evaluations to assurance level EAL4. This will put atsec in the unique position to offer Common Criteria Lab services in three national schemes: the US scheme under NIAP (National Information Assurance Partnership), the German scheme under BSI (Bundesamt für Sicherheit in der Informationstechnik), and the Swedish scheme under CSEC. This reflects atsec’s global orientation and its commitment to offer its customers the best available IT security services anywhere in the world.
Staffan Persson, co-founder and managing director for atsec information security AB commented on this development: “We are very proud to be part of the evaluation and certification scheme in Sweden, helping the scheme to succeed by operating to the same high standards as we already do under the US and German schemes.”

About Common Criteria
The Common Criteria (CC) standard is an internationally-recognized standard used by the federal government and other organizations to assess security and assurance of information technology products. The CC provides a standardized way of expressing security requirements and defines the respective set of rigorous criteria by which the product will be evaluated. The CC is widely recognized within the IT Security community, IT professionals, government agencies, and customers as the seal of security assurance for mission-critical software. Under the CC, products are evaluated against strict standards for various features, including the development environment, security functionality, the handling of security vulnerabilities, security related documentation, and product testing.
