Automating to speed up certification

Our labs have developed innovative frameworks (CCToolBox and Greenlight) to speed up the certification process thanks to key automation milestones, such as CC testing and specific CC documentation generation, evaluation, and validation. 

NIAP listing

Get your product listed in the NIAP-compliant list, required for any product intended to be used in the US National Security Systems.

Obtain an extra layer of confidence and market recognition in your CC certificate, with SOG-IS recognition, the European MRA for high assurance evaluations on Smart Cards and Security Boxes Technical Domains.   

Collaborating to define tomorrow’s cybersecurity schemes 

We collaborate with organisations such as ENISA or the SCCG to define future cybersecurity schemes, such as EUCC and 5G.


Why certify with Common Criteria (ISO 15408)

Worldwide and cross-industry recognition

A Common Criteria methodology certificate is the most globally accepted security credential. CC provides well-defined assurances on your product’s security claims, boosting confidence in your end-clients, and setting your product apart from similar, non-certified competitors.  

A market entry requirement

Being listed in the NIAP or the CC website could be a pre-requisite if you wish to participate in tenders from public agencies and large customers (Banks, Telecom Operators, etc.).
