MONTREAL AND CHICAGO—Haivision’s Makito line of video encoders achieved the Common Criteria certification, the international standard for information technology security.
Haivision’s Common Criteria certification enables customers to meet U.S. federal government and international information assurance and security requirements, including the U.S. Department of Defense Information Assurance Certification Process.
Led by the National Information Assurance Partnership, a joint initiative of the U.S. Government’s National Security Agency and National Institute of Standards and Technology, the standard ensures that products achieve a repeatable level of platform security and integrity.
Haivision’s Makito, Makito Air and Barracuda low-latency, Common Criteria video encoders have been deployed by federal and military organizations for mission-critical video applications. Makito encoders are recognized for their low-latency and high quality, HD full motion video compression combined with key length value metadata support.
Now listed on NIAP’s Product Compliant List, the Makito product line was evaluated and accredited at licensed and approved evaluation facilities for conformance to the Common Criteria for IT Security Evaluation (ISO Standard 15408). Certified Makito and Barracuda encoders are now shipping with firmware 2.1.1 and comply with the Common Criteria Protection Profile for Network Devices Version 1.1. The new firmware promotes consistent security practices and includes features to support platform integrity, administration auditing and event logging.
