Two IT security certificates for secunet products

[Essen, 21 March 2016] President of the German Federal Office for Information Security, Arne Schönbohm, presents two IT security certificates to secunet Security Networks AG at CeBIT. The certificates independently confirm the trustworthiness of the secunet eID PKI Suite and secunet firewall solution. Both products successfully received augmented certification in accordance with Common Criteria, Evaluation Assurance Level 4.

The eID PKI Suite from secunet is a set of software modules that together represent a high-performance overall system for the public key infrastructure (PKI) of official documents. They can also be individually integrated into existing system architecture. The certified eID PKI Suite Certification Authority (CA) kernel in the 1.0.0 version is a management component for handling certificates provided by a certification authority, and can be used as a foundation for building a fully-fledged PKI CA.

The certified secunet wall packet filter 5.1.0 is a Linux-based packet filter component that makes it possible to integrate packet filter functionality into firewall or VPN products that are part of the secunet wall or SINA product range. Its key functions are controlling the flow of information, generating audit data, and configuration management. The packet filter is currently used in secunet wall: the firewall solution from secunet.
