Issue Description

The NIT has issued a Technical Decision making DH Group 14 optional and removing DH Group 5 in FCS_IPSEC_EXT.1.11.


To align with NIT interpretation # 201702a, FCS_IPSEC_EXT.1.11 is modified as follows:

"FCS_IPSEC_EXT.1.11 The TSF shall ensure that IKE protocols implement DH Group(s) [selection: 14 (2048-bit MODP), 19 (256-bit Random ECP), 24 (2048-bit MODP with 256-bit POS), 20 (384-bit Random ECP)]."

The application note related to FCS_IPSEC_EXT.1.11 shall be modified as follows:


"The selection is used to specify DH groups supported. This applies to IKEv1 and IKEv2 exchanges."

For further information, please see the NIT interpretation at:

This TD supersedes NIAP TD 0195.


DH group 5 has been removed as a selectable option from FCS_IPSEC_EXT.1.11 due to its insufficient security strength as well as its incompatibility to NIST SP800-56Arev2.
