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.
NetApp submitted “NetApp Storage Encryption (NSE) Appliances Running ONTAP 9.10.1P14 Impact Analysis Report Version 1.1 September 21, 2023” an Impact Analysis Report (IAR) on behalf of NetApp, Inc.
The Impact Analysis Report (IAR) documents all changes made to the NetApp Storage Encryption (NSE) Appliances running ONTAP 9.10.1P14 since the previous Common Criteria evaluation (CCEVS-VR-VID11174-2022).
The IAR indicates that the impact of all the individual changes is minor, so it concludes that the sum of all the changes to the TOE have only minor impact.
Changes to the Security Target are detailed in the table in the ACMR.
All TOE cryptographic services are provided by the NetApp software modules CryptoMod version 2.2 and the NetApp Cryptographic Security Module (NCSM). The product updates had no effect on the CAVP certificates. The cryptographic primitives have not been affected by the product updates and the CAVP certificates remain valid for the 9.10.1P14 evaluation.
