Common Criteria for Windows Mobile 5.0


Microsoft Windows Mobile 5.0 with Messaging and Security Feature Pack has been awarded the Common Criteria Evaluation Assurance Level 2+ (EAL2+), after successful assessment by the Defence Signals Directorate (DSD) managed Australasian Information Security Evaluation Program (AISEP). The DSD is Australia's national authority for information security.

This is a significant milestone in Microsoft's commitment to assist governments and enterprises in meeting the ever-increasing security demands for mobile devices accessing sensitive data on their information networks. With this certification, Windows Mobile has been added to the DSD's Evaluated Product List (EPL), which acts as a definitive reference guide for products that can be used in the Australian Government's official communications and information systems. The evaluation was conducted by one of AISEP's evaluation labs, stratsec.

The Common Criteria is the driving force for the widest available mutual recognition of secure IT products. By meeting the security criteria for EAL2+, Windows Mobile 5.0 with Messaging and Security Feature Pack is accepted under the Common Criteria Recognition Arrangement (CCRA) by 24 members worldwide.

The following documents support the use of Windows Mobile under the Common Criteria guidelines.
