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

The new devices covered by this IAR are added as equivalent devices to the evaluated devices of the Galaxy S21+ 5G and Galaxy S21 5G (Qualcomm) shown in the entry row for Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G in the following table. The specific equivalent additions are highlighted in yellow in the table below. All non-highlighted devices in the table were included in the previous Assurance Maintenance action documented in CCEVS-VR-VID11160-2021, 3/15/2022.

The following table lists differences from the common hardware model Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G. The TOE software is identical on all models, and changes are based on the differences in the hardware components where there are variations from the previously certified model. Changes related to utilizing two screens on the new devices are outside the boundary of the TOE software (and hardware).

Certified Model

Equivalent Model highlighted in first table

Differences in Equivalent Model

Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G

Galaxy Z Fold3 5G

·   Two displays – one when closed, a folding display (7-8”) when opened (only one display is active at a time)

·   Power button fingerprint sensor (this sensor is marked as fingerprint-I in the Security Target and evaluated on the S10e)

·   Different Wi-Fi chip (see section 2.1.2)

Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G

Galaxy Z Flip3 5G

·   Two displays – one when closed for notifications, a folding display (5-6”) when opened (only one display is active at a time)

·   Power button fingerprint sensor (this sensor is marked as fingerprint-I in the Security Target and evaluated on the S10e)

·   Different Wi-Fi chip (see section 2.1.2)

Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G

Galaxy S21 FE 5G

·   Smaller screen size, lower resolution

·   Smaller battery, flash storage

The security software portion of the TOE boundary, as defined in the TSF Inventory section of the Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. Samsung Galaxy Devices on Android 11 - Spring Key Management Description, version 1.1, December 15, 2021, is identical between all models. There are no additional security features in the new devices, all changes are outside the core components of the TOE.

The S20 FE device models added as part of this maintenance action differ from the earlier S20 series devices in screen size and screen resolution. The added devices represent a minor change to the TOE.
