EAL and Trust Criteria

Asked by Hamlet Bent Jr on 2017-08-04

Hi. My question is in regards to EAL and Trust Criteria certification for Ubuntu. Will Ubuntu be on the list in the future? There was an article related to Ubuntu (I don't know which version) being at EAL 4 or higher, would anyone be able to confirm that?

What is "EAL" in this context please? I've never heard of it.

Sorry about the late response. EAL levels are a part of the trusted
computing criteria for operating systems. At the moment Red Hat Linux as
well as Side Linux are listed on the Trusted Computing website. More
information pertaining to TCSEC can be found here:

I'm replying from my smart phone and will be able to provide my other
search results from my computer hopefully later today with better search
results.

Thanks,
