Rambus offers certified silicon IP solutions tailored to the specific needs of some of the world’s most demanding applications.

Common Criteria

The Common Criteria for Information Technology Security Evaluation, known as Common Criteria or CC, is an international standard (ISO/IEC 15408) for computer security. Common Criteria provides an objective evaluation that validates whether a product or site satisfies a defined set of security requirements.

Common Criteria operates using Evaluation Assurance Levels or EAL ranging from EAL1 to EAL7. EAL4 to EAL7 are the highest levels of certification. All Common Criteria certified solutions from Rambus can be found on the Common Criteria portal.


SESIP (Security Evaluation Standard for IoT Platforms) is a certification methodology optimized for IoT components and platforms. It has five levels – SESIP1 to SESIP5 – from self-declaration to CC AVA_VAN.5 security level. The SESIP standard enables the reuse of certification through composition and can be mapped to the functional security requirements of other schemes to reduce fragmentation in IoT security certification.

The PSA (Platform Security Architecture) certification program defines security requirements and evaluation methodology for IoT Root of Trust devices. The PSA Certified RoT Component program defines standards for the Root of Trust components. It recognizes SESIP and uses SESIP as the evaluation methodology for the program.

FIPS 140

FIPS (Federal Information Processing Standards) are standards and guidelines developed by the US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to address statutory requirements for federal computing systems. State and local governments, as well as many private sector entities, voluntarily use these standards.

FIPS 140-3 (and the preceding 140-2) specifies the security requirements for cryptographic modules. The security requirements cover areas related to the secure design, implementation and operation of cryptographic modules. Rambus offers security products certified per Cryptographic Module Validation Program (CMVP) to meet the requirements of FIPS 140-3.

Rambus offers dedicated FIPS 140-3 support packages to its licensees that provide FIPS 140-3 related certification documentation, FIPS test scripts, and dedicated FIPS support.

ISO/SAE 21434

ISO/SAE 21434:2021, jointly developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), is a pivotal framework that defines a comprehensive set of guidelines and standards designed to establish a cybersecurity management system in the automotive industry.

ISO 21434 is this standard recognized by the automotive industry as the reference for meeting UN R155 regulation requirements for new vehicles. Rambus supports OEMs in their UN R155 compliance journey with secure-by-design IP developed in an ISO/SAE 21434 compliant development environment.

ISO 26262

ISO 26262-1:2018 is the standard developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) governing functional safety of electrical and/or electronic systems installed in road vehicles.

ISO 26262 establishes four Automotive Safety Integrity Levels (ASIL), from A the lowest to D the highest, representing the probability and severity of harm caused by a malfunction in an automotive system.
