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.
Cisco Systems, Inc. submitted an Impact Analysis Report (IAR) and Assurance Continuity Maintenance package to the CCEVS for approval in November 2020. The IAR is intended to satisfy the requirements outlined in Common Criteria Evaluation and Validation Scheme Publication #6, Assurance Continuity: Guidance for Maintenance and Re-evaluation, version 3.0. In accordance with those requirements, the IAR describes the changes made to the certified TOE, the evidence updated because of the changes, and the security impact of the changes.
Changes to TOE:
Cisco Systems, Inc. added several device models to the evaluated TOE. The following devices were originally evaluated:
Table 1 Cisco devices originally evaluated
This assurance maintenance action adds the following device models to the list of already-approved devices above: C9200-24PXG and C9200-48PXG.
The following table shows the complete list of products, including the prior evaluated products and the newly added products (indicated in bold red font).
Table 2 Complete list of devices covered by assurance maintenance
The differences between the devices that were originally evaluated and those that were added as part of this maintenance action are hardware related. These switches offer broadband speeds and simplified management to small businesses, and enterprise small branch and teleworkers.
The software components remain unchanged from the ones that were part of the original evaluation.
