Developing Open Standards and Certification/Accreditation Programs to Help Assure Product Integrity and Global Supply Chain Security
Our objective is to increase product integrity and supply chain security by developing open standards and accreditation programs that identify Open Trusted Technology Providers™ - so that industry can "Build with integrity, buy with confidence".
The Open Trusted Technology Provider™ Standard (O-TTPS) Certification Program
The O-TTPS Certification Program enables organizations that conform to the standard to be certified as Open Trusted Technology Providers™.
The O-TTPS, a standard of The Open Group, provides a set of guidelines, recommendations and requirements that help assure against maliciously tainted and counterfeit products throughout commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) information and communication technology (ICT) product lifecycles.
The standard includes best practices throughout all phases of a product’s life cycle: design, sourcing, build, fulfillment, distribution, sustainment, and disposal, thus enhancing the integrity of COTS ICT products and the security of their global supply chains.
This certification program is one of the first of its kind in providing certification for conforming to standards for product integrity coupled with supply chain security.
Benefits of O-TTPS Certification
The O-TTPS Certification Program is open to all suppliers, providers, and integrators.
- Identification and mitigation of security risks throughout the development, sourcing, and maintenance of COTS ICT products
- Product and market differentiation
- Collaboration between Open Trusted Technology Providers™ and suppliers
