Chinese technology giant Huawei has won the world’s first Common Criteria Evaluation Assurance Level (EAL) 4+ certificate for 5G products, said a press release.

This certificate is indication of the fact the security of Huawei 5G base station products has reached global standards and that it can provide trusted security assurance for 5G wireless access.

The Centro Criptologico National, a Spain certification authority, officially issued the certificate to Huawei 5900 Series 5G gNodeB software on May 20.

The evaluation has been conducted in accordance with the provisions of the Spanish IT Security Evaluation and Certification Scheme, and the conclusions of the evaluation facility in the evaluation technical report are consistent with the evidence adduced, according to CCN.

CC certification is a widely recognised security certification in the world which is given for seven levels.
EAL4 is ‘the highest level at which it is likely to be economically feasible to retrofit to an existing product line’.
Huawei has incorporated internationally recognised cyber security certification standards and requirements, such as CC and FIPS, into product R&D, and actively invites third-party labs to certify Huawei products.
Currently, its products and solutions have obtained more than 270 security certificates (including CC, FIPS, and CSA). — New Age
