Common Criteria

Common Criteria

Managed by the National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP) which oversees evaluations of commercial IT products for use in national security systems, Common Criteria (CC) is an assessment designed to prove that the hardware and software attributes of a network device have been independently verified against an international standard set of security requirements (ISO/IEC 15408). Although CC is not a guarantee of security, it is used by many government and military organizations as a measure that the device is suitable for use in secure networks.
