Certification Received For Rubbish Container Identification System

Atsec Information Security : 26 July, 2010  (New Product)
The RFID based container identification system for use in municipal rubbish collection vehicles in Germany has achieved Common Criteria certification
atsec announces the successful Common Criteria certification for its Austrian customer Gassner Wiege- und Messtechnik GmbH. The certificate was issued by the German Federal Office for Information Security (Bundesamt für Sicherheit in der Informationstechnik, BSI). The Container Identification System GWBIS 1.50 was evaluated against Common Criteria Version 3.1 at EAL 1+ and is conformant to the WBIS Protection Profile issued by the German Association of Towns and Municipalities (Deutscher Städte- und Gemeindebund).

Common Criteria is the international standard for certifying that software technology conforms to agreed upon security requirements. This certification is internationally recognized under the Common Criteria Recognition Agreement (CCRA).

Michael Robrecht, deputy Common Criteria lab manager for atsec Germany, evaluated the product and said, "The project shows again the flexibility of the Common Criteria standard and its applicability to a vast array of products and systems. Congratulations to Gassner Wiege- und Messtechnik GmbH for the successful completion of their certification."

The Container Identification System uses Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) technology to identify rubbish containers while they are being weighed. The resulting data - a combination if the ID and the content weight - is saved on the rubbish vehicle. At the end of a collection tour, the resulting data is transmitted to a software application for processing and invoicing. Security features of the system focus on data integrity, data loss, and creation of fake data sets during storage on the vehicle or during transmission.
