Is Automation Necessary for the CC Survival? (M31b)
The use of different automation tools in Common Criteria is a reality. In recent years, it has been demonstrated that the capacity to take on a large number of Common Criteria evaluations, both by laboratories and by the Certification Bodies, is limited. The automation of certain processes through the use of tools created specifically for this purpose is seen as the only possible way to speed up the process, both in terms of time and workload. How will the use of tools affect the immediate future of the different stakeholders in Common Criteria? Will automation lead to an increase in the number of certifications and the possibility that more companies will be able to become certified?
