Hikvision’s DS-2CD3 and DS-2CD5 IP cameras have achieved the certificate of Common Criteria for Information Technology Security Evaluation (abbreviated as Common Criteria or CC) with assurance type EAL2 augmented with ALC_FLR.2 (EAL2+). The company states that this certification demonstrates its commitment to global customers on reliability and cybersecurity.
As one of the most widely recognised international standards (ISO/IEC 15408) in information technology security, the Common Criteria certification is mainly applicable to evaluating security and reliability of information technology products or solutions, and is also focused on the protection of private information. Government organisations or government agencies from 28 countries have participated in the Common Criteria Recognition Arrangement (CCRA), including the National Information Assurance Partnership, Department of Defense of US. Many enterprise organisations also use CC as a requisite in relevant procurements.
“Along with the transformation into a networked and intelligent era, the security industry is facing unprecedented development opportunities, but also new challenges,” said Dr Wang Bin, Chief Officer at Hikvision Network and Information Security Laboratory and Network Security Department. “Hikvision is always committed to developing quality, safe and innovative security products.”
As a required process to achieve the Common Criteria certificate, Hikvision successfully passed the rigorous evaluation performed by Common Criteria testing laboratory Brightsight, a world-renowned security evaluation institution.
