BSI-certified security for networks

In the wake of the many revelations about espionage and interception attacks, the trust in network products plays an increasingly important role. After all, highly confidential data in the wrong hands can lead to serious damage to companies and public authorities. The LANCOM CC portfolio is, like all LANCOM routers, guaranteed backdoor-free and comes with security that is independently audited as meeting the high standards of the Common Criteria (CC EAL 4+).

Configuration & start-up

The LANCOM CC Start-up Kit is an all-in-one package with all required components for a certified start-up and highly secure configuration of LANCOM CC devices. Please note that for a start-up in accordance to CC only the two guidance documents are authoritative.


The certified start-up based on CC EAL 4+ takes place in 3 simple steps:

1.Download the certified CC firmware and the respective guidance documentation (Preparative Prodedures and Operational User Guidance) from the LANCOM website. Please ensure the integrity of the guidance documentation by following the guidelines in this KnowledgeBase article.

2.Connect the LANCOM CC Start-up Kit to a trusted configuration computer

3.Use the LANCOM CC Start-up Wizard (included as of LANconfig 8.82) for starting up and configuring the LANCOM CC device
