Open Trusted Technology Provider Standard Services

atsec has participated in the Trusted Technology Forum since its formation by The Open Group (1), maintaining an active participation in the development of the Open Trusted Technology Providerâ„¢ Standard (O-TTPS).



The O-TTPS is an open standard containing a set of organizational guidelines, requirements, and recommendations for integrators, providers, and component suppliers to enhance the security of the global supply chain and the integrity of Commercial Off The Shelf (COTS) Information and Communication Technology (ICT). This standard, if properly adhered to, will help reduce the risk of maliciously tainted and counterfeited products throughout the COTS ICT product life cycle, which encompasses the following phases: design, sourcing, build, fulfillment, distribution, sustainment, and disposal.

Our O-TTPS assessors and consultants understand the challenges that organizations face when dealing with the complex and dynamic topic of supply chain.

Demonstration of conformance through the voluntary O-TTPS Accreditation Program provides formal recognition of an organization's conformance to this industry standard and allows the organization to claim that they are an Open Trusted Technology Provider.

What atsec Offers
As an accredited Recognized Assessor in The Open Group O-TTPS Accreditation Program, atsec assessors are able to:

  • Perform the O-TTPS accreditation assessment

In a consultancy role, atsec can also help with:

  • Readiness analysis
    Consultants will work together with your company to provide an introduction to the O-TTPS standard and the accreditation program. By meeting with key players in your organization, we will help you determine any major gaps in your conformance to the standard and help develop a strategy towards a successful accreditation project.
    Typically, the readiness analysis process involves two days of working directly with your staff. We will then follow up with a report that details the results of our discussions and analysis.

    We can help organizations determine the Scope of Accreditation and complete the Implementation Selection Criteria Application (ISCA) template.
