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.

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

We will introduce you to a variety of real world use cases prototyped using Arduino, Raspberry Pi, BeagleBone, Spark, and Intel Edison. Y...
Is your aging software platform suffering from technical debt while the market changes and demands new solutions at a faster clip? It’s a bold move, but you might consider walking away from your core platform and starting fresh. ReadyTalk did exactly that. In his General Session at 19th Cloud Expo, Michael Chambliss, Head of Engineering at ReadyTalk, will discuss why and how ReadyTalk diverted from healthy revenue and over a decade of audio conferencing product development to start an innovati...
Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...
The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...

Identity is in everything and customers are looking to their providers to ensure the security of their identities, transactions and data. With the increased reliance on cloud-based services, service providers must build security and trust into their offerings, adding value to customers and improving the user experience. Making identity, security and privacy easy for customers provides a unique advantage over the competition.
There are several IoTs: the Industrial Internet, Consumer Wearables, Wearables and Healthcare, Supply Chains, and the movement toward Smart Grids, Cities, Regions, and Nations. There are competing communications standards every step of the way, a bewildering array of sensors and devices, and an entire world of competing data analytics platforms. To some this appears to be chaos. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, Bradley Holt, Developer Advocate a...
If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts. If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...
So, you bought into the current machine learning craze and went on to collect millions/billions of records from this promising new data source. Now, what do you do with them? Too often, the abundance of data quickly turns into an abundance of problems. How do you extract that "magic essence" from your data without falling into the common pitfalls? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Natalia Ponomareva, Software Engineer at Google, provided tips on how to be successful in large scale machine learning...
If you had a chance to enter on the ground level of the largest e-commerce market in the world – would you? China is the world’s most populated country with the second largest economy and the world’s fastest growing market. It is estimated that by 2018 the Chinese market will be reaching over $30 billion in gaming revenue alone. Admittedly for a foreign company, doing business in China can be challenging. Often changing laws, administrative regulations and the often inscrutable Chinese Interne...
In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed cloud as a ‘better data center’ and how it adds new capacity (faster) and improves application availability (redundancy). The cloud is a ‘Dynamic Tool for Dynamic Apps’ and resource allocation is an integral part of your application architecture, so use only the resources you need and allocate /de-allocate resources on the fly.
Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
