IBM ISO 20243 Certifications

ISO 20243 (Open Trusted Technology Provider™ Standard)

The Open Trusted Technology Provider™ Standard (O-TTPS) (ISO 20243:2018) is a standard of The Open Group® which provides a set of guidelines, recommendations and requirements that help assure against maliciously tainted and counterfeit products throughout commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) information and communication technology (ICT) product lifecycles.* The O-TTPS framework requires candidates to implement control requirements across three families: (1) product development; (2) secure engineering; and (3) supply chain security. The standard includes best practices throughout all phases of a product’s life cycle: design, sourcing, build, fulfillment, distribution, sustainment, and disposal, thus enhancing the integrity of COTS ICT products and the security of their global supply chains. IBM’s software products and all standardized and shared multi-tenant IBM cloud offerings, and IBM Systems Hardware Products are certified under The Open Group O-TTPS Certification Program Self-Assessed tier for O-TTPS and ISO/IEC 20243:2018.
