UL’s security laboratory in the UK has completed its first EAL4+ security evaluation under the supervision of UK CESG Certification Body. This is part of its goal to becoming a formal Information Technology Security Evaluation Facility.
The lab has been working with CESG over the last year to finalize its accreditation and has partnered with Oberthur Technologies to conduct the evaluation of its ID-One Tachograph 1.0 against Common Criteria EAL4 augmented assurance level. The lab tested the product and found it met compliance standards in early December.
In the next steps to being able to formally offer Common Criteria services, UL is now finalizing its appointment process with CESG and will soon announce its status as a Commercial Evaluation Facility (CLEF).
The lab is part of UL’s transaction security services, which was created in November 2012 by combining RFI Smart and Collis and Witham Laboratories.
