Labgram #58, Valgram #79, RSA Conference Certificate Presentation Deadlines
Validators and Labs,
The Director CCEVS will be presenting certificates at the RSA
Conference 1-5 March in San Francisco, California. The following timeline is needed for determining whether a vendor is awarded the product certificate at the conference award ceremony.
22 January 2010: Notify CCEVS of the products/vendors for which you want to be recognized during the conference.
3 February 2010: Lab delivers all final updated documentation to the validator.
10 February 2010: Validator delivers Final Package (including certificate) to CCEVS.
12 February 2010: Vendor & Lab complete, sign, and deliver all required forms (F8002, F8003, F8004) to CCEVS.
In addition, if the vendor plans to issue a product announcement at the conference needing CCEVS review, the vendor must deliver the draft announcement to the CCEVS on/before 16 February 2010.
Please pay special attention to completion of Final Packages including all necessary forms and proper documentation. Incomplete or incorrect documentation causes delays which will result in rejection or presentation at the RSA Conference.
Forms must be submitted to CCEVS on or before the deadline noted above or NIAP CCEVS will not present the certificate(s). This timeline is tight due to the availability of the IA Director to sign the certificates.
