From the Author:

The Common Criteria product security standards are being used by 26 governments around the world to evaluate and certify commercial IT products.  These standards and the evaluation process are obscure and complex. Commercial product vendors have been struggling with this for over a decade in order to qualify their products for sale to their government customers.
 
Successful Common Criteria Evaluations:  A Practical Guide For Vendors provides valuable insights from years of hands-on experience into how to successfully, efficiently and cost-effectively complete Common Criteria evaluations.  Learn the basic philosophy behind CC.  Learn about the best practices used by experienced vendors.   Avoid the pitfalls discovered by practitioners.  Uncover the secrets to meeting customer requirements.
 
I share my experiences with this obscure and complex process so that other vendors can navigate through it more easily.  I am taking a commercial product vendor's view and provide practical guidance based on years of experience including 15 successful CC evaluations and 4 failed attempts.  I will also share some stories and lessons learned I have gathered from other vendors.
 
This book is primarily aimed at the first-time CC evaluation vendor - to help him/her avoid the pitfalls that might lead to an expensive, unsuccessful evaluation.  More experienced vendors may benefit from the lessons learned through my many experiences across a wide variety of products, governments, evaluation labs and consultants

About the Author:

Wes Higaki is the chair and co-founder of the Common Criteria Vendors' Forum (CCVF). The CCVF is an informal group of individuals that work for commercial product companies. They gather to discuss issues and to serve as the "voice of industry" to the Common Criteria development process. As the former director of the Software Assurance, Wes coordinated the efforts of Symantec Corporation to ensure the secure development of software products. This included managing the company's internal secure software development and test training, threat modeling and penetration testing. He also oversaw the vulnerability management function that ensured that vulnerabilities discovered in Symantec products were quickly and efficiently corrected. He served as a spokesman addressing software assurance issues and has been an invited speaker at several conferences. Finally, he was responsible for product certifications to provide customers additional assurance through independent third-party evaluations. He oversaw all of Symantec's Common Criteria, FIPS-140 certifications and ICSA testing. He had led a working group through the National Cyber Security Partnership to develop plans to improve the Common Criteria by working with industry and Government. He co-led the Product Certifications working group in the International Technology Association of America (now TechAmerica). He represented Symantec on the SAFECode technical committee and the Computer Security Industry Alliance (CSIA - now part of TechAmerica). Wes has over 30 years of technical and managerial experience in the software industry. He was with Symantec since the December 2000 acquisition of Axent Technologies where he was an engineering director. Prior to Axent, Wes worked for over 20 years in R&D at Hewlett-Packard Company including 7 years at Hewlett-Packard Laboratories. Wes received a Bachelor of Science degree in mathematics from the University of California, Davis and a Master of Science degree in computer science from the University of Santa Clara.
