In December 2019, Defenselayers sign with National Institute of Telecommunication for evaluation of Defenselayers Secure Container for fullfilment of Common Criteria requrements. Aquiring Common Criteria certificate will allow Defenselayers solution to gain an international recognition as products which meet the highest cybersecurity requirements.

The Common Criteria for Information Technology Security Evaluation (CC), and the companion Common Methodology for Information Technology Security Evaluation (CEM) are the technical basis for an international agreement, the Common Criteria Recognition Arrangement (CCRA), which ensures that:

  • Products can be evaluated by competent and independent licensed laboratories so as to determine the fulfilment of particular security properties, to a certain extent or assurance;
  • Supporting documents, are used within the Common Criteria certification process to define how the criteria and evaluation methods are applied when certifying specific technologies;
  • The certification of the security properties of an evaluated product can be issued by a number of Certificate Authorizing Schemes, with this certification being based on the result of their evaluation;
  • These certificates are recognized by all the signatories of the CCRA.

The CC is the driving force for the widest available mutual recognition of secure IT products. This web portal is available to support the information on the status of the CCRA, the CC and the certification schemes, licensed laboratories, certified products and related information, news and events.
