Leti’s CESTI (center for IT security evaluation) recently earned Evaluation Assurance Level (EAL) 7 accreditation. The center, which is active in France’s certification systems, can now evaluate the security of all smart-card-type products with the highest international Common Criteria requirements.
The EAL7 accreditation requires the center to perform a formal design analysis on product security features and verify the corresponding results. The accreditation recognizes the center’s expertise in the field of security evaluation.
Samsung was the center’s first customer to request EAL7, the highest level of accreditation, and, in March 2013, became the world’s first manufacturer of secure microcontrollers to obtain the EAL7 assurance.
