I am working for the french governement and I tell you, Debian as
distribution can not be under CC-EAL1. 

We, in France have Certified around 270 Packages to EAL4 but the
problem is that the Upstream-Authors must follow strict guidlines
to keep this Status.

Exactly, it is impossibel with Debian to get more then EAL2. 

I think Debian itself not, but a enterprise or suborganization of
Debian CAN do this with selected packages for Intranet or Workstations.
