We are considering using Debian as our OS of choice.
Is Debian "Common Criteria Certified" and if not are there plans to get certification. http://www.linuxjournal.com/article.php?sid=7692

I couldn't find any reference to it on the web site at http://www.commoncriteriaportal.org/

This seems to be a government certification scheme (sorry if it's not, but I don't have time to mess around with PDFs right now). As a volunteer project, Debian probably will need governments adopting Debian or prospective suppliers of Debian to government to obtain these certificate. I expect most developers would appreciate the work, but it's not an immediate concern for most of us.

I preserved your CC, but assume that you are reading debian-project.
