Achieving a listing on the UC APL is quite an undertaking which has two main and equally difficult components: Information Assurance (IA) testing, and Interoperability (IO) testing. FIPS 140-2, Common Criteria, and IPv6 evaluations provide a foundation for a portion of the testing necessary to achieve UC APL certification.
“Corsec is proud to be able to expand our services to include complete project management and production of UC APL certification elements in addition to our highly recognized FIPS 140-2 and Common Criteria services,” said Matthew Appler, CEO of Corsec Security. “This provides our clients with a comprehensive and trouble-free solution through a partner they already trust and work with.”
The Approved Products List as well as the certification process are managed and supported by the Unified Capabilities Certification Office (UCCO). The UC APL certification is a requirement for information technology and information security systems that are to be placed on any DoD network.
Information Assurance and third-party validated security has been mandated for decades in order for a product to be considered for purchase by the DoD. Interoperability testing is also necessary to ensure that the products undergoing certification are securely interoperable in a way that is effective and enables efficient information sharing agency-wide.
With 250+ FIPS 140-2 and Common Criteria certificates, Corsec leverages their successful process methodology in order to help their clients achieve their security certification goals.
