The Arbit Data Diode is certified according to Common Criteria (CC), which is an international set of specifications and guidelines (ISO/IEC 15408) for computer security certification designed to evaluate information security products and systems in order to provide assurance that the process of specification, implementation and evaluation of a computer security product has been conducted in a rigorous, standard and repeatable manner.
Evaluation Assurance Level (EAL) is the numerical rating describing the depth and rigor of an evaluation. Each EAL corresponds to a package of security assurance requirements which covers the complete development of a product with a given level of strictness. Common Criteria lists seven levels, with EAL 1 being the most basic and EAL 7 being the most stringent.
The Arbit Data Diode currently has an EAL5+ certification.
