What are the advantages of testing & certification according to TR-03148?
As an interface between the Internet and private networks, routers are of particular importance. At the same time, however, this is accompanied by an increased risk of cyber attacks aimed at gaining access to the router itself, connected devices or sensitive data.
In order to prevent potential attacks with significant consequences, you – as a manufacturer of routers – should implement appropriate security measures according to state-of-the-art technology. Technical Guideline BSI TR-03148 provides you with an effective guideline for this purpose and defines a minimum level of IT security measures for routers that are used in private households or small business environments. The aim is to secure the device in a way that makes it resistant to outside attacks. Within the scope of BSI TR-03148, the core functionalities of the router and network management functions are addressed.
With successful testing & certification according to BSI TR-03148 you can objectively prove that your products are secured against possible hacker attacks and equipped with state-of-the-art IT security measures. This proof ensures transparency for consumers and therefore at the same time increases trust in the product in the market.
