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

Aruba Networks has revised the firmware OS in their hardware appliances and has added support for twelve new appliance models.  Changes are summarized below:

  • Aruba Networks has revised the firmware OS in their hardware appliances from ArubaOS version to ArubaOS version,
  • The following appliance models was added to the TOE:
    • Aruba Mobility Controllers: Aruba 7005, 7010, 7024, 7030, 7205
    • Aruba Access Points: Aruba AP-204, AP-205, AP-214, AP-215, AP-274, AP-275, AP-277
  • The functionality of the new models remains the same as prior models.  The differences in the models include the number of ports, interfaces, throughput and processing speed, memory and storage.  Although these models have different specifications (in terms of performance and capabilities), they all provide the same security functions described in the ST; therefore, they have been considered to be the same for the purposes of the ST description. There is no difference between the products and the TOE. Since the TOE is a WLAN access system, the physical boundary of each product that comprises the WLAN is the hard steel or plastic encasing.

All appliance models have been FIPS 140-2 validated with ArubaOS version and the certificate numbers are included in the updated Security Target.
