CA Technologies announced this week its directory gained Common Criteria Evaluation Assurance Level 3+ from the Communications Security Establishment Canada.
CA Directory r12 SP3, a directory designed for easy access and scalability, is used in conjunction with online applications. Common Criteria testing evaluated the directories effectiveness on both the Oracle Solaris 10 and Windows Server 2003 operating systems.
“CA continues to support Common Criteria evaluations as a measurement of security capabilities,” said Bill Clark, vice president of Public Sector Technical Sales for CA Technologies. “We understand the importance of third-party assurance, such as this certification, and are proud to have our identity and access management portfolio so well-represented on the certified products list.”
Common Criteria’s independent certification is recognized by the United States and 25 other countries. The certification evaluates a products security and looks at functional purpose, environment, documentation and previous testing. EWA-Canada’s Common Criteria Evaluation Facility conducted the certification process.
