Product Description

The Target of Evaluation (TOE) is Juniper Networks, Inc. Junos OS 19.2R1-S3 for vSRX Virtual Firewall. The vSRX Virtual Firewall delivers a complete virtual firewall solution, including advanced security, robust networking, and automated virtual machine life cycle management capabilities for service providers and enterprises. 

The vSRX Virtual Firewall supports the definition of, and enforces, information flow policies among network nodes, also providing for stateful inspection of every packet that traverses the network and central management to manage the network security policy. All information flow between network nodes passes through an instance of the TOE. Information flow is controlled on the basis of network node addresses, protocol, type of access requested, and services requested. In support of the information flow security functions, the TOE ensures that security-relevant activity is audited, that their own functions are protected from potential attacks, and provides the security tools to manage all of the security functions. The TOE provides multi-site virtual private network (VPN) gateway functionality, and also implements Intrusion Prevention System functionality, capable of monitoring information flows to detect potential attacks based on pre-defined attack signature and anomaly characteristics in the traffic.

Evaluated Configuration

Security Evaluation Summary

The evaluation was carried out in accordance with the Common Criteria Evaluation and Validation Scheme (CCEVS) process and scheme. The criteria against which the Junos OS 19.2R1-S3 for vSRX is evaluated as described in the Common Criteria for Information Technology Security Evaluation, Version 3.1 rev 4.  The evaluation methodology used by the evaluation team to conduct the evaluation is the Common Methodology for Information Technology Security Evaluation, Version 3.1 rev 4.  Acumen Security determined that the evaluation is collaborative Protection Profile for Stateful Traffic Filter, Firewalls Version 2.0 + Errata 20180314; collaborative Protection Profile for Network Devices/collaborative Protection Profile for Stateful Traffic Filter Firewalls Extended Package (EP) for Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS), version 2.11; and Network Device Collaborative Protection Profile (NDcPP)/Stateful Traffic Filter Firewall Collaborative Protection Profile (FWcPP) Extended Package VPN Gateway, version 2.1.  The product, when delivered configured as identified in the Operational User Guidance and Preparative Procedures, satisfies all of the security functional requirements stated in the Security Target. The project underwent CCEVS Validator review.  The evaluation was completed in February 2020.  Results of the evaluation can be found in the Common Criteria Evaluation and Validation Scheme Validation Report prepared by CCEVS.


Environmental Strengths

The logical boundary of the TOE includes those security functions implemented exclusively by the TOE.

Trusted Update

The administrator can initiate update of the TOE software. The integrity of any software updates is verified prior to installation of the updated software.


TOE auditable events are stored in the syslog files in the VM filesystem, and can be sent to an external log server (via Netconf over SSH). Auditable events include start-up and shutdown of the audit functions, authentication events, service requests, and IPS events. Audit records include the date and time, event category, event type, username, and the outcome of the event (success or failure). Local (VM) syslog storage limits are configurable and are monitored. In the event of storage limits being reached the oldest logs will be overwritten.


The TOE provides a Security Administrator role that is responsible for:

·         the configuration and maintenance of cryptographic elements related to the establishment of secure connections to and from the evaluated product

·         the regular review of all audit data;

·         initiation of trusted update function;

·         administration of VPN, IPS and Firewall functionality;

·         all administrative tasks (e.g., creating the security policy).

The devices are managed through a Command Line Interface (CLI). The CLI is accessible through local (serial) console connection or remote administrative (SSH) session.

The Security Administrator role includes the capability to manage the Junos VM within the KVM virtualized environment. 

Packet Filtering/Stateful Traffic Filtering             

The TOE provides stateful network traffic filtering based on examination of network packets and the application of information flow rules.

Intrusion Prevention     

The TOE can be configured to analyze IP-based network traffic forwarded to the TOE’s interfaces, and detect violations of administratively-defined IPS policies. The TOE is capable of initiating a proactive response to terminate/interrupt an active potential threat, and to initiate a response in real time that would cause interruption of the suspicious traffic flow.

User Data Protection/Information Flow Control

The TOE is designed to forward network packets (i.e., information flows) from source network entities to destination network entities based on available routing information using Virtual Routers. This information is either provided directly by TOE users or indirectly from other network entities (outside the TOE) configured by the TOE users. The TOE has the capability to regulate the information flow across its interfaces; traffic filters can be set in accordance with the presumed identity of the source, the identity of the destination, the transport layer protocol, the source service identifier, and the destination service identifier (TCP or UDP port number).
