Samsung’s 5G base stations are first 5G products to receive Common Criteria certification in U.S. and Canada

Samsung acheives First Common Criteria Certification for 5G Solutions in North America

Samsung’s 5G RAN solutions have received a Common Criteria (CC) certification against the Network Device collaborative Protection Profile (NDcPP), an internationally recognized IT security standards. The company’s certified base stations are the first 5G products to be listed on the U.S. National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP) Product Compliant List (PCL) and the Canadian Centre for Cyber Security’s Certified Product List.

CC certification was awarded by the Canadian Centre for Cyber Security, a unit under the Communications Security Establishment (CSE), with testing and validation completed by Lightship Security, an IT security test lab.

Samsung’s 5G base stations, including its baseband unit and Compact Macro, received CC certification against the NDcPP, reaffirming their network security features and capabilities. This certification validates Samsung’s commitment to building a secure network, while also ensuring its product performance and reliability.

“This Common Criteria certification is a significant milestone that reinforces our leadership in network security. We are delighted that our baseband unit and Compact Macro have been certified, meeting the highest international security standards,” said Sohyong Chong, Senior Vice President and Head of S/W R&D, Networks Business at Samsung Electronics.

“Samsung will continue to provide reliable and secure solutions to help safeguard operators’ 5G networks.”

Samsung’s Certified 5G Base Stations

The first certified product is Samsung’s next-generation baseband unit, the CDU50, which offers high capacity and flexibility in deployment, and can support both 4G and 5G networks in one unit. Also certified is Samsung’s 5G New Radio (NR) Compact Macro, which brings together a baseband, radio, and antenna into a single compact box, making it the industry’s first integrated radio for mmWave spectrum. Samsung’s Compact Macro is currently deployed in commercial 5G networks across the globe, including Japan, Korea, and the U.S.

Network security is one of the major aspects of network management and operations. With 5G providing ubiquitous connectivity among devices, people, and services, the security of 5G networks is of key importance. While operators and enterprises often rely on certified products to safeguard their networks against potential threats, this global recognition will help them be assured of the security of Samsung’s 5G solutions.
