We're proud to announce that Db2 12 for z/OS has joined Db2 11 in achieving an important milestone: Common Criteria EAL4+ certification, on 12 December, 2017. The Common Criteria is an internationally recognized ISO standard (ISO 15408) for evaluating the security properties of IT products. The certification means that clients, especially governmental organizations, can procure and use Db2 12 in the evaluated configuration with assurance, without their own further evaluation.
Evaluation assurance level 4 (EAL4) means that Db2 12 is methodically designed, tested, and reviewed. The + indicates the inclusion of documented and formal security flaw reporting and management procedures, known as Flaw Remediation components (ALC_FLR).
