Common Criteria Certification

Crunchy Data was proud to announce that its trusted open source PostgreSQL distribution, Crunchy Certified PostgreSQL, achieved certification through the Common Criteria Certification Scheme at Common Criteria Evaluation Assurance Level (EAL) 2+, an international standard (ISO/IEC 15408) for computer security certification. Common Criteria provides assurance that the specification, implementation and evaluation of a computer security product has been conducted in a rigorous, standard, and repeatable manner at a level appropriate for its target environment. Common Criteria certification provides an independent validation of the security functionality of Crunchy Certified PostgreSQL. For Crunchy Data customers, Common Criteria at the EAL 2+ level certification provides confidence that Crunchy Data's customer support and supply chain methodologies have been independently validated by a third party lab as being consistent with industry best practices.

Open source software (OSS) partner

In order to serve as a trusted partner in assisting the DoD, Crunchy Data has developed organizational policies and procedures to minimize supply chain risk associated with the use of open source PostgreSQL technology. Crunchy Data is a leading contributor to the PostgreSQL development project and a number of PostgreSQL ecosystem projects through its team of PostgreSQL Major Contributors, Committers, and Core Team members. Through this engagement, Crunchy Data continues to support the innovation of the PostgreSQL open source project, as well as a variety of PostgreSQL ecosystem projects commonly relied on by users including PostGIS, pgBackRest, and PGAudit. Crunchy Data customers have the benefit of access to this collection of upstream expertise through Crunchy Data support as well as the ability to engage with these experts to discuss the future roadmap of these projects.
