East meets west: Experiences of a Japanese company with an evaluation under the German scheme with a Dutch evaluation lab

Abstract:

The Common Criteria is an established international standard. This does not mean that there are no difficulties to overcome for internationally organized evaluations. This presentation describes the experiences of SHARP in the evaluation process for an EAL4+ smartcard. The combination of cultural and language differences (Japan, Germany and The Netherlands), technical issues (EAL4+ smartcards) and the general complexity of an CC evaluation process has made this a learning experience.
This talk will share these lessons learned with the audience.
