Speedlite 580EX II

Product Advisories

We greatly appreciate your patronage of Canon products. We would like to advise you that the Information-Technology Promotion Agency, Japan ("IPA") (a security certification organization in Japan) has initiated a review of the following imageRUNNER ADVANCE models with IEEE 2600.1 Security Kits:

  • Canon imageRUNNER ADVANCE C5000 Series 2600.1 model 1.0 /1.1 (main unit configured with the Canon iR-ADV Security Kit-A1 for IEEE 2600.1 Common Criteria Certification Set)
  • Canon imageRUNNER ADVANCE 4000 Series 2600.1 model 1.0 (main unit configured with the Canon iR-ADV Security Kit-B1 for IEEE 2600.1 Common Criteria Certification Set)
  • Canon imageRUNNER ADVANCE C5200 Series 2600.1 model 1.0 (main unit configured with the Canon iR-ADV Security Kit-C1 for IEEE 2600.1 Common Criteria Certification Set)
  • Canon imageRUNNER ADVANCE 500/400 Series 2600.1 model 1.0 (main unit configured with the Canon iR-ADV Security Kit-H1 for IEEE 2600.1 Common Criteria Certification Set)

Each of the foregoing models with Security Kits was certified under IEEE 2600.1 as IT secure by the Japan Information Technology Security Evaluation & Certification Scheme ("JISEC"). However the status was changed to "suspended" as of May 7, 2014, and it will continue as such until a reassessment is completed. Canon anticipates that the reassessment will be completed in September 2014 and hopes to resume certification under IEEE 2600.1 at that time for the above models with Security Kits. Please note that the devices with which the foregoing security kits are used continue to function without issue, and the affected models in the field have been addressed to ensure security going forward. We encourage existing customers to review the security settings of their devices to ensure they were not modified prior to the field remedy.
