When we created CESeCore, we added the most important security functions from certificate management, certificate validation and timestamping, into a re-usable Java Enterprise component library. And we worked patiently to have it Common Criteria certified! Anyone who needs these security functions no longer have to re-invent the wheel.
— Tomas Gustavsson, PrimeKey CTO
By June 2012 the CESeCore project fullfilled its primary purposes: to make the CESeCore Security Core 1); Common Criteria EAL 4+ certified and 2); publicly available for integration with enterprise applications.
Vendors aiming to attain their own Common Criteria certification will continue to draw significant benefits through the use of the fully approved CESeCore library, which greatly shortens and simplifies implementation of many important security functions.
The certified CESeCore also took PrimeKey's EJBCA Enterprise Edition a steady leap forward towards its own final Common Criteria certification (completed in October 2012).
