Cybersecurity Certification: Candidate EUCC Scheme V1.1.1

Following the request from the European Commission in accordance with Article 48.2 of the Cybersecurity Act, ENISA has set up an Ad Hoc Working Group to support the preparation of a candidate EU cybersecurity certification scheme as a successor to the existing schemes operating under the SOG-IS MRA. This has been named EUCC scheme (Common Criteria based European candidate cybersecurity certification scheme) and it looks into the certification of ICT products cybersecurity, based on the Common Criteria, the Common Methodology for Information Technology Security Evaluation, and corresponding standards, respectively, ISO/IEC 15408 and ISO/IEC 18045. This version -V.1.1.1- of the scheme has been updated based on the comments received through the public consultation and from the ECCG.


ENISA published also the report presenting the outcome of the public consultation on the first draft of the cybersecurity certification candidate EUCC scheme.
