Using Common Criteria for Procurement: International Procurement Initiatives (M13b)
The acquisition of an IT security product handling national or sensitive information must be preceded by a verification process warranting that the security mechanisms implemented in the product are adequate to protect such information. Over the last years, the national agencies of many governments have made considerable efforts to encourage and facilitate the use of certified products in national administration. Different approaches have been followed worldwide. This presentation will present the survey carried out to identify the different worldwide initiatives and will analyse the current trends in procurement for IT security products.
