Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, USA (12 July 2017) – The ISA Security Compliance Institute (ISCI) announced today that the beSTORM® software security testing tool from Beyond Security has been formally recognized for official use by certification bodies in the EDSA 2.0.0 and SSA 2.0.0 ISASecure® control systems cybersecurity certification schemes.
Communication Robustness Testing (CRT) is one of four dimensions of ISASecure control systems certifications. CRT tools are also used for network stress testing during system level certifications.
beSTORM is a commercial, black box, intelligent fuzzer that performs dynamic security testing of products in development and can be used by network administrators to certify the security of networked applications before deployment.
ISCI publishes CRT test tool recognition requirements for evaluating CRT test tools submitted by suppliers for use in the IEC 62443 based ISASecure certification program. CRT test tools that have been formally recognized by ISCI may be used by ISASecure certification bodies for use in the CRT portion of the ISASecure EDSA and ISASecure SSA certifications.
The ISASecure® tool recognition process confirms that the product’s test suites meet the ISASecure CRT requirements and are capable of consistently executing ISASecure certification tests.
ISCI recommends that suppliers use ISCI-recognized CRT test tools during the product development and testing phases to identify and correct network-based security vulnerabilities. Using recognized CRT tools during the development process also aids suppliers in preparing for formal ISASecure certifications.
The beSTORM Test tool registration and certificate can be viewed on the ISCI web site (www.isasecure.org).
"Beyond Security continues to update their products in support of the ISASecure CRT tool requirements," said Andre Ristaino, ISCI Managing Director. “We are pleased to congratulate Beyond Security on this recent achievement.”
