The companies on Wednesday said that SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 8 on IBM eServers had achieved Controlled Access Protection Profile compliance under The Common Criteria for Information Security Evaluation (CC), commonly referred to as CAPP/EAL3+.

The two firms also announced Common Operating Environment (COE) compliance on IBM xSeries and zSeries platforms for SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 8. Support for pSeries and iSeries will be available in the first half of this year.

The Common Criteria (CC) is an internationally recognized ISO standard (ISO/IEC 15408) used by the Federal government and other organizations to assess security and assurance of technology products.
