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

Cisco Systems, Inc., submitted an Impact Analysis Report (IAR) to Common Criteria Evaluation Validation Scheme (CCEVS) for approval on 2 February 2017. The IAR is intended to satisfy requirements outlined in Common Criteria Evaluation and Validation Scheme Publication #6, Assurance Continuity: Guidance for Maintenance and Re-evaluation, version 2.0. In accordance with those requirements, the IAR describes the changes made to the certified TOE, the evidence updated because of the changes, and the security impact of the changes.

The IAR identifies the changes to the TOE included adding a new hardware component to the evaluated configuration and making related changes to various documents.

The evaluation evidence consists of the Security Target, Impact Analysis Report (IAR), and User Guidance.  The Security Target was revised to introduce a new piece of supported hardware and the User Guide to identify that new hardware component. The IAR was new. 

Changes to the ST included updating the list of hardware components that are supported on the Cat4K. There were no other changes made to the ST.

Changes to the guidance document included an updated list of supported hardware components for the Cat4K. There were no other changes made to the guide document. 

The evaluation was done against the collaborative Protection Profile for Network Devices and the ST referenced validated FIPS certificates. No changes were made in either the processor or the OS version and modifications were not required in any of the valid certificates.
