nCipher nShield® XC Hardware Security Modules Achieve Common Criteria EAL4+ Certification

Security

nCipher Security, an Entrust Datacard company and provider of trust, integrity and control for business-critical information and applications, announces that its nShield® XC hardware security modules (HSMs) have received Common Criteria EAL4+ certification. This certification confirms that nShield HSMs meet the requirements of the European Union’s electronic Identification, Authentication and Trust Services (eIDAS) regulation.

“Our company has long championed best practices and industry standards, and this level of security certification demonstrates our commitment to achieving the highest standards and compliance requirements,” says Peter Galvin, vice president strategy, nCipher Security. “Common Criteria EAL4+ certification is based on independent review of the nShield XC HSM and its security properties, which is a powerful tool for building trust and confidence for nCipher customers. By meeting this standard, government agencies and private sector enterprises deploying nCipher HSMs can be assured they are implementing the most secure solutions available.”

With this Common Criteria certification, service providers who issue digital certificates, time stamps, or digital signatures can use nShield HSMs as a part of eIDAS compliant solutions. eIDAS compliance is required in the European Union, and has been adopted by many other countries around the world for government-to-government and government-to-citizen services, provision of public services and website certificates, and regulated markets such as banking, financial services and healthcare. eIDAS can be used for any cross-border services such as car rental, or whenever a business wants to ensure the legal validity of an electronic signature.
