Standards development within the Information Technology sector is harmonized with international standards development. Through the CSA Technical Committee on Information Technology (TCIT), Canadians serve as the Canadian Advisory Committee (CAC) on ISO/IEC Joint Technical Committee 1 on Information Technology (ISO/IEC JTC1) for the Standards Council of Canada (SCC), the ISO member body for Canada and sponsor of the Canadian National Committee of the IEC. Also, as a member of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), Canada participates in the International Telegraph and Telephone Consultative Committee (ITU-T).
This Standard supersedes CAN/CSA-ISO/IEC TR 15443-1:06 (adoption of ISO/IEC TR 15443-1:2005).
At the time of publication, ISO/IEC TR 15443-1:2012 is available from ISO and IEC in English only. CSA Group will publish the French version when it becomes available from ISO and IEC.
This Standard has been formally approved, without modification, by the Technical Committee and has been approved as a National Standard of Canada by the Standards Council of Canada.
This part of ISO/IEC TR 15443 defines terms and establishes an extensive and organised set of concepts and their relationships for understanding IT security assurance, thereby establishing a basis for shared understanding of the concepts and principles central to ISO/IEC TR 15443 across its user communities. It provides information fundamental to users of ISO/IEC TR 15443-2.
