Product standards for firewalls and security devices

What security standards for firewall/security products must products comply with? Are there security certification standards in place?
ICSA Labs' security certification program is the best-known standard for firewalls. Please visit their website for full details on the Firewall Certification criteria. Also the International Common Criteria for Information Technology Security Evaluation is another standard followed for security products. IETF governs the IP telephony security standards.
