Methodology for Rating Products
The technology products will scored on four key parameters
1.     Security architecture of the Product
2.     Functionality of the Product
3.     Design Compliance of the Product

Each of these parameters will have a  number of sub-parameter with a scoring methodology which will be done using proprietary rating methodology to ensure uniformity and fairness in the rating There will be a Rating committee with domain experts to review the outcome of the rating process before finalization of the technology product rating.
The Rating will be valid for a year or until a major change is undertaken in the technology product which has to be intimated as part of the Rating contract.
The Rating will be a paid service and there will be an annual fee for retaining the rating, all ratings will go through a bi-annual review to ensure that the technology product has not undergone major modification which will impact its Rating.
