Product Description

The Target of Evaluation (TOE) is Junos OS 19.1R2 for MX104 with Multiservices MIC MS-MIC-16G.  The supported MX-Series chassis is:

·         MX104

The supported Routing Engines employed by the MX104-Series Routers is:

·         RE-MX104 for MX104

Each of the Routing appliances is a secure network device that protects itself largely by offering only a minimal logical interface to the network and attached nodes. All router platforms are powered by the Junos OS software, Junos OS 19.1R2, which is a special purpose OS that provides no general-purpose computing capability. Junos OS provides both management and control functions as well as all IP routing. 

The Routing appliances primarily support the definition of, and enforce, information flow policies among network nodes.  All information flow between network nodes passes through an instance of the TOE. Information flow is controlled based on network node addresses and protocol. In support of the information flow security functions, the TOE ensures that security-relevant activity is audited and provides the security tools to manage the security functions. The TOE also provides multi-site virtual private network (VPN) gateway functionality.


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 19.1R2 for MX104 with Multiservices MIC MS-MIC-16G is evaluated as described in the Common Criteria for Information Technology Security Evaluation, Version 3.1 rev 5.  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 5.  Acumen Security determined that the evaluation is a collaborative Protection Profile for Network Devices (NDcPP) Version 2.1 and [VPN_EP] 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 March 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 the following security functionality:

Security Functionality


Security Audit

Junos auditable events are stored in the syslog files on the appliance 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, as well as the events listed in Table 4 of the Security Target. Audit records include the date and time, event category, event type, username, and the outcome of the event (success or failure). Local syslog storage limits are configurable and are monitored. In the event of storage limits being reached the oldest logs will be overwritten.

Cryptographic Support

The TOE provides an SSH server to support protected communications for administrators to establish secure sessions and to connect to external syslog servers.

The TOE also supports IPsec connections to provide multi-site virtual private network (VPN) gateway functionality.  The TOE requires that applications exchanging information with it are successfully authenticated prior to any exchange (i.e. applications connecting over SSH and IPsec).

The TOE includes cryptographic modules that provide the underlying cryptographic services, including key management and protection of stored keys, algorithms, random bit generation and crypto-administration.  The cryptographic modules provide confidentiality and integrity services for authentication and for protecting communications with adjacent systems.

Identification and Authentication

The TOE supports Role Based Access Control. All users must be authenticated to the TOE prior to carrying out any management actions. The TOE supports password-based authentication and public key-based authentication. Based on the assigned role, a user is granted a set of privileges to access the system.

Administrative users must provide unique identification and authentication data before any administrative access to the system is granted. Authentication data entered and stored on the TOE is protected.

Security Management

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 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.

Protection of the TSF

The TOE protects all passwords, pre-shared keys, symmetric keys and private keys from unauthorized disclosure. Passwords are stored in encrypted format. The TOE executes self-tests during initial start-up to ensure correct operation and enforcement of its security functions. An administrator can install software updates to the TOE. The TOE internally maintains the date and time.

TOE Access

Prior to establishing an administration session with the TOE, a banner is displayed to the user. The banner messaging is customizable. The TOE will terminate an interactive session after a period of inactivity.  An administrator can terminate their GUI session by clicking on the logout button. A user can terminate their local CLI session and remote CLI session by entering exit at the prompt.

Packet Filtering

The TOE provides packet filtering based on examination of network packets and the application of information flow rules. 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. This information is either provided directly by TOE users or indirectly from other network entities (outside the TOE) configured by the TOE users.

Trusted Path/Trusted Channel

The TOE supports SSH v2 and IPSEC for secure communication to Syslog server. The TOE supports SSH v2 (remote CLI) for secure remote administration of the TOE.
