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:

  • Software changes to the TOE involve updating PAN-OS from version 9.0.9-h1 to version 9.1.8 to accommodate new features outlined below.
    • Several new software features were added to the underlying product associated with the TOE including features related to SD-WAN, APP-ID, workflows, Panorama, USER-ID, GlobalProtect, Virtualization, Networking.
    • One hardware-related feature, Zero Touch Provisioning (ZTP) was added to the underlying product associated with the TOE.  This feature is an SD-WAN functionality.
    • Several changes to the default behavior have been implemented in the TOE, including changes related to URL filtering, REST API, URL category, web interface, GlobalProtect, SD-WAN, SAML Authentication, and firewall memory limit.

All of the above listed features are either performance enhancements, outside the scope of the evaluation, or otherwise not relevant to the security functionality of the evaluated TOE. Overall, it has been determined that the updates have “minor impact” to the evaluation.

  • Several bugs were fixed in the update of PAN-OS from version 9.0.9-h1 to version 9.1.8 to resolve issues with features that are not covered in the scope of the evaluation or otherwise not relevant to the security functionality of the evaluated TOE. Overall, it has been determined that the bug fixes have “minor impact” to the evaluation.
