||On November 20, 2017, the AltaLink B8000 Series and AltaLink C8000 Series received National Information Assurance Partnership’s (NIAP) certification against the latest Common Criteria security protection profile for hardcopy devices. Xerox ConnectKey Technology-enabled AltaLink devices are the first multifunction printers (MFPs) to be certified by the National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP) under rigorous new testing standards.
||The new Protection Profile for Hardcopy Devices v1.0 (HCD-PP v1.0) is based on the security requirements specified by the United States and Japanese government agencies. It intends to protect the information processed by an MFP from security threats and includes stringent new requirements for cryptography, authentication and secure protocols. NIAP is the U.S. government organization that ensures compliance with the global Common Criteria for Information Technology Security Evaluation.
