The work presents a methodology for building development environments of secure and reliable IT products or systems according to the newest approach called Site Certification. The methodology is based on design patterns worked out in the CCMODE project (Common Criteria compliant, Modular, Open IT security Development Environment) carried out by the Institute of Innovative Technologies EMAG. The design patterns help developers to write proper documents (evidences) according to the Site Certification requirements. This approach allows to gain a certificate for a development environment. Next, the certificate can also be used to diminish the costs of the product evaluation according to the Common Criteria standard. The work shows by examples how to accomplish the final document by using its pattern.
