Trustiness Certification of Information Technology Equipment


Manuel Pedro Coelho, Rui Miguel Silva


Vol. 13  No. 12  pp. 35-42


This paper proposes a system, which assigns trustiness certification to information technology equipment through a series of tests and evaluations. This system is based in a methodology that should be applied in a laboratory, which issues a technical report containing the results of all the methodology steps, including the results of the testing and evaluation, any detected occurrences and the obtained assurance level of trustiness. Both the laboratory and the technical report should be accredited by the respective national competent bodies. This system allows the certification of information technology equipment and in this paper we exemplify with the certification of a desktop computer.
