Security Standards

The standards detailed here were developed to help evaluate and establish system assurance and measure and assess security. Trust gives us some assurance that these systems will operate in a given and predictable manner and that our IT infrastructure is secure.

Common Criteria (CC) for IT Security Evaluation

The CC is used for evaluation of Information Technology (IT) security systems. IT contains both functional requirements and assurance requirements.

The three links that follow are for sites in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom. Each provides more information about Common Criteria and its application.
