Tooling in Support of Common Criteria Evaluation of a High Assurance Operating System

This document discusses productivity tools that facilitated our efforts to create a high assurance operating system for smart card chips and evaluate it under the Common Criteria at EAL7. It does not discuss the features of the operating system itself. A detailed description of the operating system can be found in [39].This document includes only a brief discussion about Common Criteria at high assurance levels; however, further details can be found in [4-6].
