System Certification

Different certifications drive many markets to ensure safety. While Linux offers a solid platform to build a product, it in general does not go through tests and validation to ensure certifications needed in automotive, medical, mil/aero, or industrial markets. 

MontaVista Linux has an advanced Carrier-Grade development paradigm including aspects of continuous improvement and requirements-to-implementation traceability. These features allow us to assist customers to accomplish needed validation, testing, and documentation. 

MontaVista has worked on different certifications for embedded devices, such as Common Criteria -  Evaluation Assurance Level 4+ (EAL4+) certification. We are currently reviewing the EU Cybersecurity Act to develop a new package focused on this framework in MVSecure services.  

Below are examples of where MontaVista can be of assistance. 

System Security - Common Criteria – EAL4+ certification 

MontaVista Linux is being used in IT and telecom applications that need to be certified according to Common Criteria, up to EAL4+ level. Evaluation Assurance Level 4+ (EAL4+) is commonly used to secure connectivity in  critical environments, such as fire and police departments, or aviation and industry control systems. With the help of EAL4+ these critical environments canfor example ensure secure and safe phone calls, control communication in-flight and for the assembly line, and achieve secure internet access. 

MontaVista has many years of experience in Common Criteria and a large partner program, and we’re able to provide a complete certified operating system environment based on MontaVista Linux. The common criteria evaluation is as follows:
