GCT at the Common Criteria Development Board bi-annual Session

March 26, 2012 at 4:16 pm PST

Today I am happy to have a guest Post from Jennifer Gilbert.  Jennifer functions as the Global Certification Team (GCT) lead for Strategy and Policy.  She can be reached at jtgilber@cisco.com

During the course of March 20 to March 22nd, the Common Criteria Development Board (CCDB) held its bi-annual session in Tokyo, Japan.

A precedent setting Industry invitation resulted in the 1st Joint CCDB and Industry Workshop – representatives from Cisco, Microsoft, Intel, SafeNet, Ricoh, EWA, SiVenture, Corsec, Aerospace, and Epoche & Espri participated in this first ever Joint Workshop.  While several indepth discussions took place, a draft of the Terms of Reference (ToR) for Technical Communities was well received by the CCDB.  The ToR is currently out for review within the broader Common Criteria Forum (CCF) to assure those who were unable to participate from Industry in Tokyo are able to provide input and comment further.  Cisco anticipates that the CCDB will instantiate the Terms of Reference within the next 3 months.  For those who would like to follow more closely, you can apply to be a part of the CCF here.

The 1st Joint CCDB and Industry Workshop was rendered a success and encouraged for future ICCC events; the 2nd Joint CCDB and Industry Workshop will be held in September, one week in advance of the ICCC Paris.

Cisco Common Crypto Module is now FIPS certified!

December 2, 2011 at 11:40 am PST

The Global Certification Team is proud to announce the FIPS Certification of the Cisco Common Crypto Module (C3M).  The Official listing can be found on the NIST website at http://goo.gl/3vPaa.

The Cisco Common Cryptographic Module (C3M) is a software library that provides cryptographic services to a vast array of Cisco’s networking and collaboration products. The module provides FIPS validated cryptographic algorithms for services such as sRTP, SSH, TLS, 802.1x etc. The module does not implement any of the protocols directly. Instead, it provides the cryptographic primitives and functions to allow a developer to implement various protocols.
