SY0-201 studies

January 5, 2009

Hello All,

The holidays have finally come and gone and I can get back to studying. I found an interesting website via the Comptia Security+ Study Guide called http://www.commoncriteriaportal.org/index.html.

The website is the basis for the new standards for computer security.

Real fast:

Seven levels are broken down into Evaluation Assurance Levels (EALs)

EAL1 — is the bare minimum that a system will operate correctly but threats to security are not viewed as serious.

EAL4 — is the benchmark for commercial systems.

EAL7 — is intended for extremely high levels of security

Just for reference Windows Vista is ranked as EAL1: http://www.commoncriteriaportal.org/products_OS.html#OS
