Despite Android’s malware reputation, Samsung pursues DSD EAL2 certification

David Braue | May 29, 2013
Samsung is set to put the ever-more-tarnished security reputation of Google's Android operating system to the test by submitting three of its flagship products for testing against the Defence Signals Directorate (DSD)'s Australasian Information Security Evaluation Program (AISEP).

If its push for EAL2 certification is successful, the products will join the DSD's Evaluated Products List, a register that maintains the security accreditation status of products that have successfully undergone the rigorous evaluation process.

Other mobile products already on the list include Apple's iOS operating system, the Blackberry PlayBook,BlackBerry OS 7.0, and Microsoft Windows Mobile 6.5. The BlackBerry 10 operating system is currently under evaluation and is estimated to have completed the process by the third quarter.
