Security Test Suites

IT security and data protection are the central issues in electronic data traffic and affect all industries. Transport Layer Security (TLS) and Internet Key Exchange (IKE) / Internet Protocol Security (IPsec) are recognized standards that form the basis for secure IT networks. Implementation and configuration are very complex and can offer loopholes for attackers if not implemented correctly. The TLS Inspector and IKE/IPsec Inspector test suites help to identify and close these loopholes.

TLS Smart Metering Inspector - Professional certification support for smart meters and smart meter gateways
Smart meters and smart meter gateways work with personal and household-related data. Both the devices and the software used must therefore meet the highest security requirements in order to protect this data from attacks. For the integration of the devices into the smart grid, these requirements are specified by TR-03116-3 from the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI).

The TLS Smart Metering Inspector from achelos is already optimized for the requirements according to Common Criteria and BSI TR-03116-3. All BSI requirements are fully covered by the preconfigured test suite.

The test suite is characterized by a high degree of automation, easy integration into other systems and an intuitive, web-based user interface. In addition, detailed reporting and audit-proof documentation guarantee the traceability of the test execution.
