Stockholm, Sweden, 22nd October, 2012 - We are pleased to announce that PrimeKey Solutions AB has successfully completed Common Criteria EAL4+ Certification of EJBCA version 5. The much awaited Common Criteria certificate, issued by ANSSI (Agence nationale de la sécurité des systèmes d’information), is an important milestone in EJBCA's 10+ years rich history of achievements.
With this formal evidence that EJBCA confirms to the rigorous security standards for Certificate Issuance and Management Systems, this Common Criteria certification benefits Primekey’s customers and partners, and strengthens EJBCA's position as the top pick of secure Certificate Authority software around the world.
Due to regulations and legislations, the Common Criteria EAL4+ Certification is often mandatory to reach the highest level of security requirements in computer software. The proof of achieved CC certification is a neccessity for EJBCA users who need to run mission critical PKI, and who will have their own software, solution or service, certified and audited for standards compliance, such as CWA and WebTrust. PrimeKey welcomes, of course, the certification as an additional proof that our EJBCA development adheres to the strictest security practices and enables us to reach out to customers that require formal certification.
“Our clients' projects often have to undergo own strict security certification and audit processes. This official proof of EJBCA's Common Criteria Certification will help them reach positive outcome, which sometimes is crucial for us in order to sign a new contract ”, says CEO Konstantin Papaxanthis.
EJBCA v.5 is exclusively available to PrimeKey's support customers and partners. From now on, no organisation has to refrain from using EJBCA because of any particular security requirements. PrimeKey's customers can go straight ahead having their EJBCA based projects security evaluated and formally certified as audit compliant to the most demanding standards.
