From 30 October to 1 November, the 17th International Common Criteria Conference will take place in Amsterdam. The International Common Criteria Conference is presented with the support of the Common Criteria User Forum (CCUF). The CCUF provides a voice and communication channel between the CC community and the organising committees of the Common Criteria, CCRA member organisations (national programmes) and policy makers.
SRC will also actively participate in this year’s conference. In a presentation by our expert Sven-Martin Hühne on the topic “JTEMS — a Payment Scheme Independent Framework for POI Terminal specific Security Evaluations based on Common Criteria” the JTEMS Framework is presented and the current “state of affairs” is explained. The presentation deals with the advantages of a CC-based and Payment Scheme independent evaluation and certification procedure for POI terminals. The framework is a living example of the active use of the CC method by interested parties from the private sector (German banking industry and UK Finance or Common.SECC). The possibility of embedding the JTEMS framework in current discussions of the EU Commission for a “European Security Certification Scheme” will also be discussed.
In the panel discussion “The Why and How of Using CC in Private Schemes”, Regine Quentmeier discusses these aspects from the point of view of users from the European banking industry in an exchange with representatives of other economic sectors.
