ANSSI – French Network and Information Security
Cryptographic module certification for YubiKey
CSPN (Certification de Sécurité de Premier Niveau) is a cyber security certification currently used in France. CSPN is equally robust as Common Criteria (CC) and Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS), which is why it is viewed as a trusted certification process. It defines the processes to allow accredited third-party entities to evaluate and ensure that a target product or system meets the security requirements defined in its security target.
BSI – Germany’s Federal Cyber Security Authority
This lineup is also recognized by BSI, the federal cybersecurity authority in Germany. The BSI recognizes CSPN certification as meeting their strict security standards and is the equivalent of BSZ certification
