The CC represents the outcome of a series of efforts to develop criteria for evaluation of IT security that are broadly useful within the international community. In the early 1980's the Trusted Computer System Evaluation Ctriteria (TCSEC) was developed in the United States. In the succeeding decade, various countries began initiatives to develop evaluation criteria that built upon the concepts of the TCSEC but were more flexible and adaptable to the evolving nature of IT in general. In Europe, the Information Technology Security Evaluation Criteria (ITSEC) version 1.2 was published in 1991 by the European Commission after joint development by the nations of France, Germany, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom. In Canada, the Canadian Trusted Computer Product Evaluation Criteria (CTCPEC) version 3.0 was published in early 1993 as a combination of the ITSEC and TCSEC approaches. In the United States, the draft Federal Criteria for Information Technology Security (FC) version 1.0 was also published in early 1993, as a second approach to combining North American and European concepts for evaluation criteria. Work had begun in 1990 in the International Organsation for Standardisation (ISO) to develop a set of international standard evaluation criteria for general use. The new criteria was to be responsive to the need for mutual recognition of standardised security evaluation results in a global IT market.
