Having obtained EAL3+ Common Criteria certification, Bull's MetaPKI software now achieves ANSSI standard qualification.
Obtaining both certifications confirms MetaPKI's inherent security and reaffirms Bull's role as a trusted supplier of security solutions for its international and French customer base.
9, 2013 -
Bull has achieved EAL3+ Common Criteria certification and ANSSI standard qualification for its Public Key management software solution, MetaPKI.
EAL3+ Common Criteria certification was obtained as the result of an evaluation process carried out by an independent laboratory, and attests to the fact that Bull's software meets the full set of security requirements required for this type of product.
The standard qualification awarded by the French National Information Systems Security Agency, ANSSI (Agence Nationale de la Sécurité des Systèmes d'Information), is the result of additional controls carried out by ANSSI which successfully proved that the MetaPKI software complies with French government requirements and the criteria set out in its General Security Repository or RGS (Référentiel Général de Sécurité).
MetaPKI is a comprehensive solution for creating digital certificates and managing them throughout their lifecycle. It enables the provision of security services including user authentication, non-repudiation of transactions and confidential data exchange. Thanks to its highly modular nature, it can be used by all kinds of organizations from businesses and public sector bodies to secure service providers.
"When combined with its Hardware Security Module (HSM) solutions and its security consulting and secure hosting services, the MetaPKI software makes Bull one of the few European players capable of offering its customers a global approach to secure IT platforms; from design through implementation to operation," explained Franck Greverie, Executive Vice-President Security Solutions at Bull. "By achieving this certification for MetaPKI ¬- alongside the Common Criteria certifications gained for its HSM range of solutions and the ISO 27001 certification which covers its hosting services - Bull has further enhanced the security levels for its solutions, to the benefit of its major customers."
