    Color copiers earn security clearance
    They’re
    not firewalls, nor are they public-key infrastructures, but six Xerox
    color copiers and multifunction devices recently earned Common Criteria
    Certification from the National Information Assurance Partnership
    (NIAP), Xerox officials said today.
    The Xerox WorkCentre Pro C2128,
    C2636 and C3545 multifunction devices, and the CopyCentre C2128, C2636
    and C3545 color copiers each were certified at Evaluation Assurance
    Level 2 (EAL 2). There are seven EALs, with EAL 7 providing the highest
    security assurance.
    Specifically, NIAP certified the Xerox products
    based on their Image Overwrite Security option, which electronically
    shreds documents, and embedded fax security, which protects information
    by keeping fax lines and network connections separate.
    The Xerox
    products become the first complete color office systems to earn Common
    Criteria standing. Twelve black-and-white WorkCentre and CopyCentre
    devices reached Common Criteria EAL 2 earlier this year.
    “Customers
    can now capitalize on the impact of color while trusting that their
    highly sensitive documents and intellectual property will remain
    secure,” said Tim Williams, president of the Xerox Office Group, in a
    statement.
    Xerox is not the only printing company to go through
    Common Criteria testing. Konica Minolta Business Technologies Inc.’s
    Bizhub Pro Control software is certified at EAL 3. It can be installed
    on Konica multifunction devices to keep document data secure.
    Similarly, security software add-on kits from Canon USA and Sharp Corp.
    have been certified up to EAL 3.
    Many government agencies, particularly in the Defense Department, require Common Criteria Certification for IT products they use
    .
