Secure compliance with technical guidelines
IT products and systems intended for use in security-critical fields of application must meet the highest security requirements. These requirements are specified by the Technical Guidelines (TR) of the Federal Office for Information Security (BSI). The use of the encryption standard TLS (Transport Layer Security) is also specified in detail in the various application-specific TRs of the BSI.
But how can the TLS conformity of a device and its software be tested efficiently and effectively? And how can the correct application of TLS already be ensured during the development of a new solution?
TLS Services by achelos
The open-source TLS test tool "TaSK" of the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) tests Transport Layer Security (TLS) configurations according to the test specification TR 03116-TS.
achelos developed the TaSK framework on behalf of the BSI and offers a comprehensive package of support and extensions around the BSI solution. Manufacturers and test centres can thus test the security and TLS conformity of software efficiently and flexibly.
