Oracle and the Common Criteria
Oracle is an active advocate of the Common Criteria. The first vendor to develop and evaluate database protection profiles, Oracle was the first database vendor to be awarded a Common Criteria certificate for its Oracle7, Release 7.2 database server product.
Overview of the Common Criteria
The Common Criteria awards successfully evaluated products evaluation assurance level (EAL) ratings from EAL1 (lowest) to EAL7 (highest).
To date all of Oracle's evaluations have been performed under Common Criteria version 2. The latest Common Criteria version is 3.1 and was released in September 2006.
Database Management System Protection Profiles
In June 2006 the U. S. Government Protection Profile Database Management Systems For Basic Robustness Environments version 1.1 was Common Criteria certified.
