NGCert Next Generation Certification

01/01/2014 to 31/12/2017

The aim of the NGCert project is to develop the basics and procedures for dynamic certification. This is to ensure that all relevant quality and safety requirements of the certificate are adhered to at all times, even if technical innovations are integrated into the services. For this purpose, metrics must be defined that make IT security measurable and by means of which it can be continuously checked whether, for example, the criteria of a certificate are still met after a software or hardware update. At the same time, the verification of the certificate criteria should be automated. This allows users to be sure at all times that their security and privacy requirements are fully met.
