Soprano GAMMA 4.1 Recertified With Government-Backed Common Criteria Accreditation

Soprano Design Common Criteria Certification

On the back of announcing the launch of the latest version of GAMMA 4.1, the enterprise messaging app has achieved recertification with the highly acclaimed Common Criteria standard for high levels of security and encryption.

Soprano GAMMA originally received the Common Criteria certification* in 2016 following an independent evaluation by BAE Systems, a licensed laboratory and leading global cyber security firm.

The recertification means the Soprano GAMMA 4.1 app remains among an elite band of technologies that have achieved the internationally recognised Common Criteria certification.


Common Criteria

Common Criteria is the international ISO standard  to assess the security and assurance of technology products.

As a part of the Common Criteria certification, GAMMA was tested to ensure adherence to NIST-recommended implementation for symmetric and asymmetric key encryption.

The certification is internationally recognised by some of the top security organisations in the world including the USA’s National Security Agency (NSA) as a part of the NIAP, the Australian Signals Directorate (ASD) and the UK’s National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), a division of the GCHQ.

*Common Criteria Evaluation Assurance Level 2 Augmented (EAL2+). Common Criteria certification addresses all facets of the technical solution from the Access Control to the cryptographic key word generation, authentication, user identity, and auto trails.
