[Via Satellite 02-25-2016] The National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP), a U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and National Security Agency (NSA) program, has granted Common Criteria certification to Kratos Defense and Security Solutions CyberC4:Alert, a product from its RT Logic subsidiary. Officially known as the NIAP Common Criteria Evaluation and Validation Scheme for IT Security (CCEVS), the program serves as a partnership between the public and private sectors to validate that IT security products conform to international standards.
CyberC4:Alert is a Security Information Event Manager (SIEM) specifically tailored for satellite ground networks. According to Kratos, the product is the first SIEM designed for satellite ground networks and operations. CyberC4:Alert provides network administrators and information security officers with real-time situational awareness and incident response for cybersecurity situational awareness and mission assurance.
For a product to be considered for NIAP certification, it must undergo evaluation in the United States with a NIAP-approved Common Criteria Testing Laboratory (CCTL). Additionally, management from the Common Criteria Evaluation and Validation Scheme (CCEVS) must officially accept the product for review. CyberC4:Alert now meets the Common Criteria for Information Technology Security at Evaluation Assurance Level 1 (EAL1).
