Let the C2 evaluations begin
The government's new security technology evaluation program-touted as a fast-track
approach for C2-level systems certifications-has opened its doors for business.
Last month, the National Security Agency announced that it is accepting applications
from organizations interested in serving as Trust Technology Assessment Program (TTAP)
evaluators to rate low-end commercial security products.
Accredited TTAP evaluation facilities will run tests to certify vendor compliance
with the government's list of Trusted Computer System Evaluation Criteria, known as the
Orange Book. Products earning passing grades will be added to NSA's C2 products list.
