Hikvision Achieves Common Criteria Certificate
♦ Hikvision Achieves Common Criteria Certificate – Hikvision reports that its network camera product series, DS-2CD5, DS-2CD7 and PTZ version 1.1 (nearly a hundred product models), have achieved CC EAL3+ Certificate – the highest level of security certification granted to products in the video security category.
The Common Criteria (CC) certification applies to evaluating security and reliability of information technology products or solutions, as well as the protection of private information. As one of the most widely recognized international standards (ISO/IEC 15408) in information technology security, the Common Criteria certification is recognized by the National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP) under the Department of Defense in the United States.
Government organizations or agencies from 31 countries, including the US, the UK, and Canada, have participated in the Common Criteria Recognition Arrangement (CCRA) – it serves as an important basis for evaluating security of information technology. As part of the required process to achieve the Common Criteria certificate, Hikvision successfully passed the rigorous evaluation performed by the globally-recognized evaluation institution SGS Brightsight laboratory.
“We were pleased to carry out continuous Common Criteria security evaluation cooperation from EAL2 to EAL3 with Hikvision, which we started in 2018,” said SGS Brightsight chief operation officer Asia, Kai-Fan Chang.
“The EAL3 certification of large-scale product models not only fully demonstrates that Hikvision’s technical expertise in the field of information security is widely recognized by the international community, but also marks that Hikvision has the ability to manage the supply chain to ensure the daily use of information security and provide customers with more secure services.”
