Common Criteria

Common Criteria for Information Technology Security Evaluation (Common Criteria or CC) is an international standard (ISO-IEC 15408) for evaluating IT products and systems. This certification framework provides assurance that the process of specification, implementation, and evaluation of security measures has been conducted in a rigorous, standardized, and repeatable manner. The National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP) serves as the U.S. representative to the Common Criteria Recognition Arrangement (CCRA), which is composed of over 30 member nations.
