Readers are reminded that the certification of this product (TOE) is the result of maintenance, rather than an actual re-evaluation of the product.  Maintenance only considers the affect of TOE changes on the assurance baseline (i.e. the original evaluated TOE); maintenance is not intended to provide assurance in regard to the resistance of the TOE to new vulnerabilities or attack methods discovered since the date of the initial certificate.  Such assurance can only be gained through re-evaluation. 

Using a security impact analysis of the changes made to the TOE, which was provided by the developer, the CCEVS has determined that the impact of changes on the TOE are considered minor and that independent evaluator analysis was not necessary.  A summary of the results can be found in the Maintenance Report, which is written in relation to the product's original validation report and Security Target.  Readers are therefore reminded to read the Security Target, Validation Report, and the Assurance Maintenance Report to fully understand the meaning of what a maintained certificate represents. 

Product Description

Assurance Continuity Maintenance Report:

·        Seagate submitted an Impact Analysis Report (IAR) for the twenty-five Common Criteria certified models listed above

·        The IAR specifies that there are two security relevant firmware changes; both firmware changes fixed incorrect reporting issues related to the security subsystem but did not impact the underlying security architecture. There are no changes to the development environment.

·        Code change did not have any impact on the developer evidence of the validated TOE.

·        The changes to the ST and other documents were limited to document version with the addition of the new firmware version.

Changes to TOE:

Firmware versions A003 and 0004 are both based upon existing firmware revision 0003. Firmware versions TFA2, NFA2, SFA2, and EFA2 are each based on existing firmware revisions TF01, NF01, SF01, and EF01, respectively.

The hardware models use the firmware versions as shown in the following table.
