High Assurance evaluations

A Australian Signals Directorate (ASD) High Assurance evaluation encompasses evaluation of security in a product excluding the cryptographic component, which is treated as High Grade cryptography.

All ASD evaluations, including High Assurance evaluations, must be recommended by an Australian or New Zealand government agency in accordance with the recommendation process.

ASD determines the method and strength of testing required for ASD High Assurance evaluations.

ICT products that are being or have been evaluated are listed on the Evaluated Products List (EPL).
