Common Criteria (ISO 15408) is an international security standard containing a common set of requirements for the security functions of IT products and systems and assurance measures applied to them. The Common Criteria is a framework that provides assurance that the process of specification, implementation and evaluation of a computer security solution has been conducted in a rigorous, standard, achievable, repeatable and testable manner at a level that is commensurate with the target environment for use.
