  • r-AnalytiCA: Requirements Analytics for Certification & Accreditation

    Numerous interdependent quality requirements imposed by regulatory Certification and Accreditation (C&A) processes enable a rich context to gather compliance evidences for promoting software assurance. The goal of the r-AnalytiCA workbench is to make sense out of the large collection of available evidences for a complex software system though multidimensional requirements-driven problem domain analysis. The requirements analytics employed in the workbench support C&A activities by leveraging the expressiveness of ontologies used to model C&A requirements and their interdependencies.

  • Higher education's role in job training

    The article addresses a situation that has been developing for at least two decades. The Ivory Tower views the mission of information systems (IS) undergraduate and graduate programs as educational. In the last few years, however, that mission has steadily transformed into one of training. Traditionally, higher education has prepared students for either graduate work or for employment. The author wants to promote an exchange of ideas about academic issues that affect industry, or industry issues related to academia. Over the next few months the column intends to discuss topics such as certification, accreditation, distance learning, IT employment, electronic portfolios, trends in IT higher education and curriculum development, and the readiness of new IT graduates.

  • Visual Analytics for Requirements-driven Risk Assessment

    Risk assessment is a complex decision making process during certification and accreditation (C&A) activities. It requires to understand the multidimensional correlations among numerous C&A requirements to reason about their collective and adequate behavior to minimize risks to a software system. Also, diverse stakeholders in the organizational hierarchy should be able to comprehend and utilize the risk assessment artifacts to agree upon an acceptable level of risks and justify the criticality and cost of mitigation strategies related to C&A requirements. We believe requirements visualization plays an important role in providing rich contextual information for understanding and analyzing risk assessment artifacts and present our initial experiences in using intuitive visual metaphors and their explanations for requirements-driven risk assessment.

  • Proposed standard processes for certification of modeling and simulation applications

    Certification of modeling and simulation (M and S) applications is becoming more commonly practiced as M and S applications are used more and more for military training, analysis, complex system design evaluation, M and S-based acquisition, problem solving, and critical decision making. Certification is a very complex process, involves the measurement and evaluation of hundreds of qualitative and quantitative elements, mandates subject matter expert evaluation, and requires the integration of disparate measurements and evaluations. Planning, managing, and conducting such measurements and evaluations require structured standard processes and should not be performed in an ad hoc manner. The need for standard processes for unbiased, fair, cost effective, and consistent M and S certification is undeniable. This paper presents a scheme for practicing M and S accreditation and certification and proposes standard M and S certification processes.

  • A critique on traceability of EMC measurements

    In a competitive global market, product quality assurance by an accredited laboratory assumes great importance for overall acceptance of the product. For electrical and electronic products, the European market has stipulated mandatory quality certification like 'CE' marking which calls for regulatory EMC testing and certification carried out at empowered laboratories. Acceptance of EMC test data from various laboratories warrants traceability of EMC measurements between various test environments. For test laboratories dealing with electrical and electronic products, ISO/IEC17025 standard provides the guidelines for accreditation, similar to ISO 9000 standards for manufacturing and service sectors. One of the most important criteria for getting accreditation for the test laboratories as per the ISO guidelines is the traceability of the test equipment which would ensure minimum inaccuracy and the required confidence level of the measured data. In this paper the authors intended to address the traceability issue related to estimated uncertainty in EMI measurements and calibration of EMC test equipment.

  • Benefits of certification

    To inform readers about the IEEE Computer Society's new Certified Software Development Professional credential program, Computer's board invited Leonard Tripp to describe the program and outline its benefits to professional software developers. Likewise, it invited Adam Kolawa to set forth his concerns about the efficacy of certification. Tripp asserts that certification will help in establishing professional standards and raising the benchmark for individual performance in achieving software quality and productivity. Kolawa counters that we should first determine - if possible - what makes computer science a science and enforce this understanding through accreditation at the educational level, not through certification after the fact.

  • Certification will do more harm than good

    Certification is an unnecessary proof that developers have not forgotten the fundamentals they learned in an accredited computer science program.

  • Applying the TNI to system certification and accreditation

    Department of Defense systems that process sensitive (including classified) information must undergo formal technical assessment and approval before they are allowed to operate. The technical assessment and approval processes are called certification and accreditation, respectively. The author presents issues involved in certifying and accrediting networks with respect to the two network views, the Single Trusted System (STS) view and the Interconnected Accredited AIS (IAA) view, presented in the Trusted Network Interpretation of the Trusted Computer Security Evaluation Criteria, NCSC-TG-005. Certification and Accreditation procedures differ significantly between the STS view and the IAA view of networks.<<ETX>>

  • X3D Conformance Testing Factors in Creating Aviable Test Suite

    X3D is an ISO standard for real time 3D graphics. It is the successor to the Virtual Reality Modeling Language (VRML). The specification is available at the Web3D consortium Web site. The Web3D consortium sponsors the creation of the X3D ISO standards, and releases these standards to the Internet community free of charge. The consortium, however, requires that X3D browsers successfully complete a testing process before a certification of compliance is granted. To enable the Web3D accreditation program to proceed, the first author has led the process of creating the conformance testing suite for the X3D "interchange" profile for the Web3D Consortium. This paper focuses on: 1.The trials and pitfalls of creating a conformance testing suite for the X3D "interchange "profile; 2.Verification of the open source X3D browser (FreeWRL) to verify the test suite and to provide images for the documentation process and 3."Lessons learned" about standards writing by highlighting both successful techniques and pitfalls/omissions found in the X3D ISO standards

  • Certification and accreditation in the EC
