The framework conditions for the evaluation and measurement methods are determined either by international standards and specifications, such as Common Criteria, FIPS PUB 140-3, as well as specifications of the national and international credit services sector (EMVCo, Die Deutsche Kreditwirtschaft (The German Banking Industry Committee)).
