From Eric Betts at the VMware Security Blog — something we’re very proud of.
On May 20, 2008, VMware VI3
(ESX Server 3.0.2 & VirtualCenter 2.0.2) achieved Common Criteria
certification at EAL4+ under the Canadian Common Criteria Evaluation and
Certification Scheme (CCS). EAL4+ is the
highest assurance level that is recognized globally by all signatories under
the Common Criteria Recognition Agreement (CCRA). …
VMware is the first and only
virtualization vendor for industry standard x86 hardware to successfully
complete the rigorous Common Criteria certification process. Although several operating system vendors
bundle virtualization technologies as part of their products, to
date, none have included virtualization technology as part of their Common
Criteria security certifications.
