TITLE OF PRESENTATION
Product certification: good and bad
With ROCA vulnerability impact for Estonian eID we have had our doubts about the guarantees that a security certificate gives for clients. With that experience we went to certify our own Smart-ID product in the similar manner. On top of that EU cyber security package forsees product certifications in three different levels without any clear purpose. How that all could make sense and if it makes sense at all.
