Product Description

The Target of Evaluation (TOE) is the CommScope Technologies LLC, Ruckus FastIron ICX Series Switch/Router 9.0.10 with MACsec.  The TOE is composed of a hardware appliance with embedded software installed on a management processor.  The software controls the switching and routing network frames and packets among the connections available on the hardware appliances.  While there are different models in the four series, they differ primarily in physical form factor, number and types of connections and slots, and relative performance.

Evaluated Configuration

The evaluated configuration consists of the following series and models:

a.     ICX 7550 SKUS with ICX7400-4X10GF Module

b.     ICX 7650 SKUS with ICX7400-4X10GF Module

c.     ICX 7650-48F

d.     ICX 7850-48FS

The different series have differing CPUs as described below:

       The ICX 7550 Series utilizes a Quad-core ARM Cortex A72 (ARMv8-A architecture)

       The ICX 7650 Series utilizes a Quad-core ARM Cortex A57 1.6GHz (ARMv8-A architecture)

       The ICX 7850 Series utilizes a Quad-core ARM Cortex A57 1.6GHz (ARMv8-A architecture)

Security Evaluation Summary

The evaluation was carried out in accordance with 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 5, April 2017. 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 5, April 2017.  The product, when delivered and configured as identified in the RUCKUS FastIron FIPS and Common Criteria Configuration Guide, 09.0.10, September 1, 2022 document, satisfies all of the security functional requirements stated in the CommScope Technologies LLC, Ruckus FastIron ICX Series Switch/Router 9.0.10 with MACsec Security Target, Version 1.0, September 13, 2022.  The project underwent CCEVS Validator review.  The evaluation was completed in September 2022.  Results of the evaluation can be found in the Common Criteria Evaluation and Validation Scheme Validation Report (report number CCEVS-VR-VID11295-2022) prepared by CCEVS.

Environmental Strengths

The logical boundaries of the Ruckus FastIron ICX Series Switch/Router are realized in the security functions that it implements. Each of these security functions is summarized below.

Security audit:

The TOE generates logs for a wide range of security relevant events. The TOE can be configured to store the logs locally so they can be accessed by an administrator and to send the logs to a designated log server using TLS to protect the logs while in transit on the network.

Cryptographic support:

The TOE contains a CAVP-tested cryptographic module that provides key management, random bit generation, encryption/decryption, digital signature and secure hashing and key-hashing features in support of higher-level cryptographic protocols including MACsec, SSH and TLS.  The TOE supports SHA1 message digest authentication for NTP servers.

Identification and authentication:

The TOE requires users to be identified and authenticated before they can use functions mediated by the TOE, except for passing network traffic in accordance with its configured switching/routing rules.  It provides the ability to both assign attributes (usernames, passwords and privilege levels) and to authenticate users against these attributes.

Security management:

The TOE provides Command Line Interface (CLI) commands to access the wide range of security management functions to manage its security policies.  All administrative activity and functions including security management commands are limited to authorized users (i.e., administrators) only after they have provided acceptable user identification and authentication data to the TOE. The security management functions are controlled using privileges associated with roles that can be assigned to TOE users. Among the available privileges, only the Super User can manage the security policies provided by the TOE and the TOE offers a complete set of functions to facilitate effective management since the Super User allows for complete read-and-write access to the system.

Protection of the TSF:

The TOE implements a number of features to protect itself to ensure the reliability and integrity of its security features.

It protects particularly sensitive data such as stored passwords and cryptographic keys so that they are not accessible even by an administrator. It also provides its own timing mechanism to ensure that reliable time information is available (e.g., for log accountability). The TOE can also be configured to work with an NTP server for reliable time.

The TOE includes functions to perform self-tests so that it might detect when it is failing. It also includes mechanisms (i.e., verification of the digital signature of each new image) so that the TOE itself can be updated while ensuring that the updates will not introduce malicious or other unexpected changes in the TOE.

TOE access:

The TOE can be configured to display a message of the day banner when an administrator establishes an interactive session and subsequently will enforce an administrator-defined inactivity timeout value after which the inactive session (local or remote) will be terminated.

Trusted path/channels:

The TOE protects interactive communication with administrators using SSH for CLI access to ensure both integrity and disclosure protection.  If the negotiation of an encrypted session fails or if the user does not have authorization for remote administration, an attempted connection will not be established.

The TOE protects communication with network peers, such as a log server and authentication server, using TLS or MACsec connections to prevent unintended disclosure or modification.
