I strongly agree with proposal 8, and recommend going further and creating a government-supported common criteria evaluation laboratory in HK, integrated into the Mutual Recognition Agreement. That will stimulate innovation in security technologies in Hong Kong, because they will be able to earn internationally-recognised certifications such as EAL4.
