Aspects of Common Criteria Certifications

Aspects of Common Criteria Certi­fi­ca­tions — Guest lecture at the Vienna University of Technology

Aspects of Common Criteria Certi­fi­ca­tions — this is the topic of the lecture that the experts of the SRC evalu­ation body for Common Criteria will address at the Vienna University of Technology. The lecture will take place on 10 May 2019 as part of the lecture IT Security in Large IT Infra­struc­tures at the Institute of Infor­mation Systems Engineering.

Common Criteria in science

With the help of Common Criteria for Infor­mation Technology Security Evalu­ation (CC), IT products can be evaluated regarding their security according to general criteria. As an inter­na­tionally recog­nised standard, Common Criteria is of interest to the scien­tific world. Initially, an evalu­ation is carried out by an evalu­ation body accredited by the German Federal Office for Infor­mation Security (BSI). SRC is accredited as such a CC evalu­ation body. The BSI then carries out the certi­fi­cation.

Guest lecture for students

The SRC experts will discuss the Aspects of Common Criteria Certi­fi­ca­tions at first hand. The lecture informs the students about the basic approach for product certi­fi­ca­tions according to Common Criteria. Infra­struc­tures in the European Union that rely on Common Criteria certi­fi­cation will be highlighted. The formal side including the respon­sible certi­fi­cation and recog­nition bodies will also be considered. The comparison of Common Criteria with other concepts concludes the lecture. Certi­fi­ca­tions according to technical guide­lines of the BSI, ISO27001 or the criteria of the Payment Card Industry (PCI) will be considered.
