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

Changes to TOE:

The TOE changes consisted of updates to both the hardware and the software. The updated evaluated software, evaluated as ArubaOS 8.2, is now at version 8.5. The sections below describe the changes to the TOE and a corresponding justification for each.

Changes to TOE Hardware:

A new controller, 7280, has been added to the evaluated configuration as a supported Mobility Controller device. The device is claimed to have identical functionality as the other supported Mobility Controller devices. It has the same software as the others in the series. This model’s security functionality is identical to all other Mobility Controller devices and it has a Broadcom XLP processor like the other Mobility Controller models so the existing CAVP certificates are valid. Additionally, regression testing was performed and the CAVP certificates remain valid for this device.
