Abstract:


International standard and certification play major role in product distributions and marketing activities. To be well accepted in global market, all IT products and services require international evaluation and certification such as Common Criteria (CC) certification. This paper discusses some of the security, trust and privacy issues in Common Criteria that would happen during evaluation and certification of IT products and services. Our main intention is to help interested stake holders in choosing a finest authorizing member of CC certification for IT products and services using our new trust model. The proposed trust models takes into account the dynamically changing international relationship among nations which produces an index value during selection of finest CC authorizing member. The trust models use game theory to identify the finest CC authorizing member. We hope to contribute to this area of research by lessening the “cost to market” of IT products and related services. It is anticipated that it would give positive impact on global business transaction by having better and wider acceptability using our models in the selection of the finest CC authorizing member, CC consumer, and vendor (manufacturer).
