Huawei developed the HongMeng operating system core technology , which was awarded the industry’s first Evaluation Assurance Level 6 Augmented (EAL6+) certification in accordance with the Common Criteria (CC) information security evaluation criteria framework.

This was a historic moment as Huawei became the first smart device company in the world to receive this certification.

This certification certifies the highest level of security for general purpose operating system kernels. The kernels of operating systems are the basis of their security and privacy. The Common Criteria (CC), also known as the ISO/IEC 15408 standard, is an important information security certification widely accepted and recognized by the global IT industry. The HongMeng core safety evaluation process was conducted by SGS Brightsight, a leading safety evaluation laboratory, which confirmed its compliance with the international standard Common Criteria level EAL6+.


The CC EAL6+ certification poses a new challenge for Huawei in the field of product cybersecurity, celebrating its outstanding achievements. To date, Huawei holds more than 500 cybersecurity assessment certifications, including standards such as CC, FIPS, ISO 19790, PCI DSS, and CSA STAR.

Huawei prioritizes cybersecurity and privacy protection. These obligations transcend commercial interests. The company’s success in cybersecurity has been recognized in more than 170 global markets, where Huawei serves more than three billion people. Customer trust is the most convincing proof of the safety and quality of Huawei products and services.

Huawei is confident that openness and cooperation with the ICT industry contribute to the overall success. The company is actively collaborating with peers and industry stakeholders to share best practices. In 2022, Huawei submitted about 300 cybersecurity standard proposals to the 3GPP Mobile Communications Specification Organization and the GSMA. Through collaborative efforts and innovation with stakeholders across the value chain, the company is helping to strengthen the industry’s cybersecurity and privacy capabilities to build a safer digital world.
