Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6.2 Achieves Highest Level Common Criteria Certification

JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6.2 has been awarded the Common Criteria Certification at
Evaluation Assurance Level (EAL) 4+ which is the highest level of assurance for a commercial middleware platform.  

Achieving the Common Criteria Certification for JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6.2 supports Red Hat's reputation as an industry leader in technology and showcases the company's ongoing commitment to security. In 2012, JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 5.1.0 and 5.1.1 also achieved Common Criteria certification at the EAL4+ assurance level.

EAL categorizes the depth and rigor of the evaluation, and EAL4+ assures consumers that the software has been methodically designed, tested, and reviewed to meet the evaluation criteria.

As with past Common Criteria certifications, Red Hat worked with atsec information security, a government accredited laboratory in the United States and Germany. atsec tested and validated the security, performance and reliability of the solution against the Common Criteria Standard for Information Security Evaluation (ISO/IEC 15408) at EAL4+.
