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.
For this Assurance Continuity, the change consists of making the following software version updates:
· From: McAfee Network Security Platform (NSM Linux Appliance v10.1.19.17 and NS Sensor Appliances v10.1.17.15)
· To: McAfee Network Security Platform (NSM Linux appliance v10.1.19.47 and NS Sensor appliances v10.1.17.63)
The following table lists the TOE software changes:
In summary, with one exception, the TOE version updates include changes/updates to the TOE software related to performance and other product features that are either not relevant to the original evaluation or otherwise do not affect original security claims. The single exception is an updated feature that adds an interface, which is now listed as an excluded functionality in the updated ST. Bug related updates were performed to address identified CVEs, including those related to OpenSSL, and all have been patched in the updated TOE software. There are no listed hardware changes.
