CoSign von ARX erhält Common Criteria EAL4+-Zertifizierung

ARX, der weltweit führende Anbieter digitaler Signaturlösungen, gibt bekannt, dass sein Vorzeigeprodukt CoSign die Common Criteria EAL4+-Zertifizierung von OCSI erhalten hat. Die italienische Zertifizierungsorganisation für Informationssicherheit hat strenge Tests bezüglich Hardware- und Software-Sicherheit im IMQ-Labor durchgeführt.

Mit der neuen Zertifizierung gilt CoSign offiziell als äußerst sicheres, zentral verwaltetes Remote-Signatur-Instrument, das dem nächsten Monat in Kraft tretenden italienischen Signaturgesetz vollkommen entspricht. Die Zertifizierung bedeutet weiterhin, dass CoSign den Prinzipien der jüngst von der Europäischen Union in Kraft gesetzten Verordnung für elektronische Identifizierung und Vertrauensdienste für elektronische Transaktionen im Binnenmarkt (eIDAS) entspricht.

CoSign wurde von Forrester Research als stärkste digitale Signaturlösung am Markt ausgewiesen und bietet eine einzigartige Kombination leistungsfähiger Sicherheitsfunktionen: Die Signaturschlüssel befinden sich in einem vollkommen sicheren Hardware-Sicherheits-Modul (HSM), das auch den Remote-Signaturprozess ausführt, was bedeutet, dass jeder Nutzer/jede Nutzerin die alleinige Kontrolle über seinen/ihren Schlüssel behält. Darüber hinaus sorgt die Zwei-Faktoren-Authentifizierung, wie von der neuen eIDAS-Verordnung vorgeschrieben, für eine zusätzliche Sicherheitsebene.

Organisationen, die zuvor Smartcards verwendet haben, können problemlos zu der CoSign-Remote-Signaturlösung übergehen und Unterzeichner in der gesamten EU befähigen, ihre Dokumente unter Verwendung der neuesten Technologien digital zu unterzeichnen. CoSign versetzt Anbieter von Vertrauensdiensten in die Lage, ihren Kunden neue Dienstleistungen wie Remote-Signatur-Funktionen und qualifizierte Unterschriften auf den unterschiedlichsten Plattformen, einschließlich Handys und Tablets, anzubieten. Dank der problemlos einzusetzenden CoSign-Lösung können Organisationen zudem interne private Anbieter von Vertrauensdiensten etablieren, die ihre eigenen qualifizierten Remote-Signaturen erzeugen.

„Wir sind stolz darauf, dass CoSign jetzt gemäß Common Criteria EAL4+ zertifiziert ist, was Millionen europäischen Firmen neue Gelegenheiten eröffnen wird. Als die erste Remote-Signaturlösung, die vollkommen konform mit der neuen europäischen eIDAS-Verordnung ist, freuen wir uns darauf, beim Übergang zu sicheren Remote-Signatur-Verfahren in Europa eine wesentliche Rolle spielen zu dürfen“, sagte Ezer Farhi, Vice President von Forschung und Entwicklung bei ARX und Mitglied der CEN- und ESTI-Normierungskomitees.

We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...
Enthusiasm for the Internet of Things has reached an all-time high. In 2013 alone, venture capitalists spent more than $1 billion dollars investing in the IoT space.
