Definition: Certification is the process the zone integration server (ZIS) or application and agent as a pair are put thought by the software applications developer. The certification for the SIF Specifications is conducted by the Open Group, a third party certification authority hired by the SIF Association. Certification warrants and tests the claims that the software application vendors assert about their ZIS or agent to the SIF Specification. (As defined by the SIF Association.)

What This Means: Vendors rely upon certification by SIFA to establish credibility for their products as being capable of complying with the SIF standard. SEAs and LEAs rely upon certification to establish credentials beyond what they are able to confirm in their own due diligence.
