China: TC260 releases draft national standard for security of terminal computers

The National Information Security Standardisation Technical Committee of China ('TC260') released, on 5 May 2023, a draft national standard on general security technical specifications for terminal computers and is requesting public comments on the same. In particular, the TC260 noted that the draft standard specifies the general security technical requirements for terminal computers, describes the testing and evaluation methods, and guides the design, development, testing, and evaluation of general security functions for the same.

More specifically, the draft standard outlines existing standards that should be considered in regard to technical computer security and provides guidance in a number of areas, including:

  • personal information security;
  • identity identification and authentication;
  • access control;
  • security audits and analysis; and
  • the backing up and recovery of data.

Comments can be submitted via email to [email protected] until 4 July 2023.
