Publication of C5-DEC CAD

C5-DEC, short for “Common Criteria for Cybersecurity, Cryptography, Clouds – Design, Evaluation and Certification”, is a sub-project of the CyFORT project, which in turn stands for “Cloud Cybersecurity Fortress of Open Resources and Tools for Resilience”.


C5-DEC CAD, the software component of C5-DEC, is a suite of tools for computer-aided design and development (CAD), mainly dealing with: the creation and evaluation of secure IT systems according to the Common Criteria standards, secure software development life cycle (SSDLC), and what we refer to as cyber-physical system security assessment (CPSSA).

This repository contains the source code and full documentation (requirements, technical specifications, user manual, test case specifications and test reports) of C5-DEC CAD, exemplifying the C5-DEC method, which relies on storing, interlinking and processing all software development life cycle (SDLC) artifacts in a unified manner.
