NITES (National IT Evaluation Scheme) enables the evaluation and certification of IT products that meet high assurance requirements for Singapore government agencies.
By relying on certified, high-quality products, companies can ensure they are implementing the most secure solutions possible.
NITES by the Cyber Security Agency (CSA) of Singapore assure the utilization of the HSMs for the highest security level for Singapore government agencies. NITES is also considered important in the other ASEAN countries and is accepted by other governments.
Apart from Singapore’s national security requirements, NITES largely adopts, the Common Criteria methodology of evaluating the products at a high assurance level.
Utimaco’s u.trust Anchor, the world’s first converged crypto platform for payment and general purpose HSM use cases now has NITES certification after obtaining the Common Criteria certification.
