Red Hat’s Java platform solution JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 4.3 has received the Common Criteria Certification with a status of Enterprise Application Platform at EAL 2 (augmented for flaw mediation). JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 4.3 is the backbone of Red Hat’s JBoss Enterprise Portal Platform, JBoss Enterprise Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) Platform, and JBoss Enterprise Business Rules Management System (BRMS).
Common Criteria standards are set internationally and used by government agencies and businesses to assure the security of IT products in industries ranging from finacial services to health care.
“JBoss Enterprise Middleware has already proven to be an enterprise-class solution, and many government agencies already rely on JBoss to develop, deploy and manage their Java applications. In the federal government, Common Criteria certifications are required to establish the integrity of solutions for the most sensitive applications.” said Paul Smith, general manager and vice president of Government Sales Operations at Red Hat, “By achieving Common Criteria certification at EAL2+, we are witnessing an important milestone in the evolution of open source middleware; JBoss has proven itself to be trustworthy and capable of meeting strict security requirements.”
