One step in the development of certifiable secure systems is to provide trust in the development process and in the implemented security mechanisms of the product. In the domain of information technology, the Common Criteria schemes are used to evaluate the implemented security mechanisms of a product. Traditionally, a product certification is issued at a late stage of the development process, even though some Common Criteria evaluation paradigm exists to support the development process. The usage of such a paradigm would result in a beneficial certification process, since the evaluator gains experience through the maturing product. We have identified patterns which are designed to support the development process of secure applications. Based on these patterns, a systematic approach to integrate the evaluation process into the development process can be defined.
