CEA-Leti’s IT security testing center (CESTI) is one of eleven in France.
In 2000, French IT security authority ANSSI approved CEA-Leti’s testing center to evaluate electronic components and systems like smart cards.
The center has earned recognition for its biometric identification expertise and was recently accredited by the international FIDO Alliance for password-free authentication protocols.
This year the center completed its first audit in partnership with Elitt, a laboratory that specializes in secure transactions, leading to a FIDO certification. Finally, the center also recently applied to ANSSI for accreditation to certify facial recognition and other remote identity verification solutions.
