HID Global, a provider secure identity solutions, announced that it has obtained re-certification to Common Criteria Evaluation Assurance Level 6 (EAL6) site certification for its Galway, Ireland manufacturing facility from the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI). With this updated certification, HID Global is now certified to include OS loading onto flash memory chips.

“By being certified for OS loading onto Flash Memory Products, HID Global can even better meet customer expectations for faster delivery times. The process reduces the time-consuming step of packaging chips into modules,” said Rob Haslam, Vice President and Managing Director, Government ID business with HID Global. “This increases the competitive advantage for HID Global and extends the service available to our customers.”

Electronic ID Credential Facility

The company’s Ireland manufacturing center is a high-security, state-of-the-art electronic ID (eID) credential facility that creates products for access and identification-related applications such as electronic passports as well as contactless IDs and access cards. The EAL6 site certificate covers the HID Global’s initialization and production environments and processes for personal e-ID products, including RFID inlays for datapages, e-passports and contactless national ID cards.

Common Criteria Specifications

Common Criteria is an internationally approved set of rigorous security standards that ensures a clear and reliable evaluation of the security capabilities of information technology products for government customers. Site certificates from BSI are accepted in all countries following the Common Criteria specifications. The Evaluation Assurance Level (EAL1 through EAL7) of an IT product or system is a numerical grade assigned following the completion of a Common Criteria security evaluation. The increasing assurance levels reflect added assurance requirements that must be met to achieve Common Criteria certification and the intent of the higher levels is to provide higher confidence that the system's principal security features are reliably implemented.
