GSMA Network Equipment Security Assurance Scheme Test Laboratories

In essence, the scheme is a combination of the NESAS Product Development & Lifecycle Management Process Audit + the NESAS Product & Evidence Evaluation. To clarify, authorised GSMA NESAS Test Laboratories carry out the latter. Chiefly, they evaluate equipment vendors’ network products according to one or several 3GPP Security Assurance Specifications. Together with any additional security requirements that may be defined by the GSMA. Significantly, equipment vendors may choose from any of the Authorised GSMA NESAS Test Labs.

How to become a NESAS security test laboratory

Any network security test laboratory experienced in the following can apply: IT, network and telecommunications security testing. First though, the laboratory needs to undergo an ISO 17025 accreditation. In short, a recognised ILAC member ISO 17025 accreditation body assesses its competence in the context of NESAS. Then, once accredited, test laboratories can inform the GSMA of their new status. In addition, they can provide a copy of their ISO 17025 certificates.

If you would like to know more or speak to someone about the scheme, please get in touch.

Current Authorised GSMA NESAS Test Labs

The GSMA recognises the following security test laboratories as being competent to undertake security evaluation of network products, against relevant Security Assurance Specification (SCAS) documents. Markedly, all NESAS Test Labs must have ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation from their national accreditation body.
