The C&A process was introduced in the Trusted Computer System Evaluation Criteria (TCSEC
) , known as the Orange Book, and was then recognized as an international standard under the name of Common Criteria (CC) .
Comparatively, ITSEC evaluation is a little bit different compared to TCSEC
because it does not require evaluated target systems to include detailed evaluation in technical design and implementation.
Some nations use their own ISMS, e.g., ISMS  of Korea, Information Security Check Service (ISCS) of Korea, Department of Defense (DoD) Information Technology Security Certification and Accreditation Process (DITSCAP)  of USA, Defense Information Assurance Certification and Accreditation Process (DIACAP)  of USA, IT Baseline Protection Manual (ITBPM)  of Germany, ISMS  of Japan, Trusted Computer System Evaluation Criteria (TCSEC
)  of USA.
The requirements defined in the LSPP correspond to the TCSEC
B1 security level.
Since 1982 the National Computer Security Center (NCSC) has been evaluating the products developed by computer and computer software manufacturers under the activity entitled "Trusted Products Evaluation Program." The NCSC published the Trusted Computer System Evaluation Criteria (TCSEC
) in 1983.
NCSC'S CRITERIA FOR EVALUATING TRUSTed computer systems are defined in the Trusted Computer System Evaluation Criteria (TCSEC
), in the orange book.
