Common Criteria (ISO/IEC 15408) is one of the world’s most widely recognized and comprehensive IT security standards and can be used to certify any IT system or device providing security functions. The Common Criteria for Information Technology Security Evaluation (CC), and the companion Common Methodology for Information Technology Security Evaluation (CEM) are the technical basis for this international agreement. Rambus is certified to develop and market security products to Common Criteria EAL4+.
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) the to meet the requirements of FIPS 140-3.
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. Rambus offers ISO 26262 ASIL B certified and ASIL D ready security IP solutions (embedded HSMs) and ASIL B certified MIPI® CSI-2® interface IP for automotive applications.
