Defining security and assurance requirements for smart phones and tablets, ETSI recently released the "Consumer Mobile Device Protection Profile, ETSI TS 103 732" specification, which identifies key security and privacy risks for user data and appropriate protection. The ETSI standard specifies security requirements for consumer mobile devices, ensuring protection of key user data. We speak to Alex Leadbeater, ETSI TC CYBER Chair, about this initiative.
The ETSI specification covers security features such as cryptographic support, user data protection, identification and authentication, security management, privacy protection, resistance to physical attack, secure boot, and trusted communication channels. ETSI TS 103 732 defines security assurance requirements and is suitable for certification initiatives such as the European Cybersecurity Act, offering a common methodology for evaluators to assess the security of consumer mobile devices.
