The CLS-Ready is a complementary scheme to the Cybersecurity Labelling Scheme (CLS). It allows CLS products to leverage on security functionalities provided by CLS-Ready certified platforms to meet the CLS Level 4 requirements.
This initiative allows smart product manufacturers to focus on developing end-device functionalities, without having to invest heavily into a team to develop the cybersecurity aspects of these devices.
Chip manufacturers will also stand to benefit, as a single CLS-Ready platform will be able to support multiple end-devices through the process of attaining the highest CLS security rating, thus expanding their market reach.
Manufacturers applying for the CLS-Ready certification will need to submit the application with supporting evidence and an assessment report by a CLS-Ready Approved lab.
The CLS-Ready certificate will be valid for the duration for which the platform will be supported with security updates, up to a maximum of five years.
