We all know how bad the security of commercial software can be and now it's time we do something about it. The Common Criteria is a proven method to fixing the woeful state of software security and this book is the key to the front door that leads to the path of provably secure systems. It's useful for students, researchers, practitioners, and software developers who truly want to make a difference in finally bringing trust into an otherwise untrustworthy world.
