Gossamer’s premier offering is our Accredited Security Testing Laboratories which are products of decades of experience and lessons-learned from some of the historically most highly regarded Common Criteria and Cryptographic and Security Testing Laboratories and beyond.

While Gossamer is engaged in performing evaluations for a variety of technologies, our premier testing offering is for Mobility products. At present we are the only laboratory to have completed Common Criteria evaluations of Android™-based mobile devices in the U.S. and have done so multiple times and with each new requirement update.

The NSA Commercial Solutions for Classified (CSfC) program is the latest evolution related to the FIPS and Common Criteria testing and evaluation paradigm.  

The CSfC program has been created to promote the development of security-enabled products that can be used off-the-shelf for classified applications.

Gossamer is familiar with the available CSfC capability packages and CSfC selections for the NIAP-approved Protection Profiles and can guide you through the CSfC process. 

If you are interested in getting your product listed as a CSfC Component you should contact Gossamer today.


At the end of 2014, Gossamer was the newest NIAP-accredited Common Criteria Testing Laboratory.

Based on the year-end numbers for 2014, Gossamer has come from behind to become one of NIAP's highest performing laboratories in terms of evaluations completed in the current Common Criteria evaluation paradigm.

However, while Gossamer has been completing a relatively large number of evaluations, Gossamer has also been completing those evaluations on an average of 3-6 times faster (measured from kick-off to certificate date) than any other NIAP-accredited laboratory. 

This makes Gossamer the clear choice for your evaluation needs. Contact Gossamer today.
