Product Description

The TOE is a remote access application that executes on a mobile platform and provides a VPN tunnel to protect data in transit on both IPv4 and IPv6 networks. 

The TOE provides IPsec to authenticate and encrypt network traffic travelling across an unprotected public network.  By protecting the communication from unauthorized disclosure or modification, remote users can securely connect to an organization’s network resources and applications.

Evaluated Configuration

The TOE is a mobile VPN client application executing on an iPhone mobile device platform. It requires one of the following Common Criteria certified mobile platforms:

·         Apple iPhone 7/7 Plus running iOS 11.2

Refer to the Apple iOS on iPhone and iPad Devices Security Target[1] for information regarding the evaluated configuration requirements.

Security Evaluation Summary

The evaluation was carried out in accordance to the Common Criteria Evaluation and Validation Scheme (CCEVS) requirements and guidance. The evaluation demonstrated that the TOE meets the security requirements contained in the Security Target.  The criteria against which the TOE was judged are described in the Common Criteria for Information Technology Security Evaluation, Version 3.1, Revision 4, September 2012. The evaluation methodology used by the evaluation team to conduct the evaluation is the Common Methodology for Information Technology Security Evaluation, Evaluation Methodology, Version 3.1, Revision 4, July 2012.  Gossamer Security Solutions determined that the evaluation assurance level (EAL) for the TOE is EAL 1.  The product, when delivered and configured as identified in the Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client, v4.6 for Apple iOS 11.2 CC Configuration Guide, Version 0.4, May 2018 document, satisfies all of the security functional requirements stated in the Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client for Apple iOS 11.2 Security Target, Version 0.5, May 30, 2018.  The project underwent CCEVS Validator review.  The evaluation was completed in June 2018.  Results of the evaluation can be found in the Common Criteria Evaluation and Validation Scheme Validation Report (report number CCEVS-VR-VID10880-2018) prepared by CCEVS.

Environmental Strengths

The logical boundaries of the Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client for Apple iOS are realized in the security functions that it implements. Each of these security functions is summarized below.

Cryptographic support:

The TOE provides cryptography in support of IPsec with ESP symmetric cryptography for bulk AES encryption/decryption and SHA-2 algorithm for hashing.   In addition the TOE provides the cryptography to support Diffie-Hellman key exchange and derivation function used in the IKEv2 and ESP protocols.  The cryptographic algorithm implementation has been validated for CAVP conformance.  See Table 13 in section 6 of the Security Target for certificate references.

The TOE platform provides asymmetric cryptography, which is used by the TOE for IKE peer authentication using digital signature and hashing services.  In addition the TOE platform provides a DRBG.

User data protection:

The TOE platform ensures that residual information from previously sent network packets processed through the platform are protected from being passed into subsequent network packets.

Identification and authentication:

The TOE and TOE platform perform device-level X.509 certificate-based authentication of the VPN Gateway during IKE v2 key exchange.  Device-level authentication allows the TOE to establish a secure channel with a trusted VPN Gateway.  The secure channel is established only after each endpoint successfully authenticates each other. 

Security management:

The TOE, TOE platform, and VPN Gateway provide the management functions to configure the security functionality provided by the TOE. 

Protection of the TSF:

The TOE performs a suite of self-tests during initial start-up to verify correct operation of its CAVP tested algorithms.  Upon execution, the integrity of the TOEs software executables is also verified.   

The TOE Platform provides for verification of TOE software updates prior installation.

Trusted path/channels:

The TOE’s implementation of IPsec provides a trusted channel ensuring sensitive data is protected from unauthorized disclosure or modification when transmitted from the host to a VPN gateway.
