Issue Description

In the VPN Client PP-Module, the  objective SFR: FAU_GEN.1 Audit Data Generation typically has a dependency on FPT_STM: Reliable Timestamps which is not implicitly or explicitly satisfied by the module itself or the App PP. The App PP should have an assumption of a reliable clock at minimum when claiming SFRs that need a reliable mechanism for determining certificate validity.


The A. Platform assumption in App PP v1.2 and App PP v1.3 is replaced as follows:

    The TOE relies upon a trustworthy computing platform with a reliable time clock for its execution. This includes the underlying platform and whatever runtime environment it provides to the TOE.
