CoSign by ARX Receives Common Criteria EAL4+ Certification

ARX, the global leader in digital signature solutions, is proud to announce that CoSign, its flagship product, has received Common Criteria EAL4+ certification from OCSI, the Italian information security certification organization, after undergoing rigorous testing of hardware and software security at the IMQ laboratory.

With this new certification, CoSign has been officially recognized as a highly secure, centrally managed remote signing device that fully complies with the Italian signature law that will be enforced starting next month. This certification also means that CoSign complies with the principles outlined in the European Union’s recently enacted ‘Electronic Identification and Trust Services for Electronic Transactions in the Internal Market’ (eIDAS) regulation.

Declared the strongest digital signature on the market by Forrester Research, CoSign offers a unique combination of powerful security features: The signature keys are housed in a fully secure Hardware Security Module (HSM) appliance, which also performs the remote signing process, ensuring that each user maintains sole control of his or her keys. In addition, two-factor authentication provides the benefit of an additional layer of security as required by the new eIDAS regulation.

Organizations that previously used smartcards can easily transition to the CoSign remote signing solution, enabling signers across the EU to digitally sign their documents while using the latest technologies. CoSign also allows Trusted Service Providers to offer new services to their customers, such as remote signing capabilities and qualified signatures on a variety of platforms including mobile phones and tablets. The easy-to-deploy CoSign solution will also enable organizations to easily establish internal private TSPs that can generate their own remote qualified signatures.

“We are proud that CoSign is now Common Criteria EAL4+ certified, opening new opportunities for millions of European businesses. As the first remote signing solution to fully comply with the new European eIDAS Regulation, we look forward to playing a significant role in the European transition to the use of secure remote signing,” said Ezer Farhi, VP of R&D at ARX and a member of the CEN and ESTI standardization committees.

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists will dis...
See storage differently! Storage performance problems have only gotten worse and harder to solve as applications have become largely virtualized and moved to a cloud-based infrastructure.
