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).
