Protection Profiles Workshop for Developers

Writing a good Protection Profile that captures the security problem of the sponsor and can be used by developers and evaluators with specific TOEs requires a significant investment of effort.

The Common Criteria is an internationally-accepted standard used as a basis for the evaluation of security functions and properties within Information Technology products and systems. Protection Profiles specify an agreed set of security requirements for a class of IT products and are often used in purchasing decisions by IT product purchasers such as large corporations and government bodies.

There has been a lot of activity in developing Protection Profiles that are relevant and meaningful to a particular industry or IT product class. Recent success includes collaborative work on defining PPs for Operating Systems, Multi Function Printers, and Smartcards. Others are already underway or in the planning stages.

atsec and a group of IT security companies have joined to teach developers how to write Protection Profiles.
