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.

The firm turned to the Cisco Internet Business Solutions Group (IBSG) to help Toyota determine where improvements could be made and how to implement them.
