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 IAR identifies the changes to the TOE, which include support for USB On-The-Go (OTG) and charging for SOCOM-provided USB hub, additional network drivers and support for additional USB network connectivity, blocking of SIM card removed notifications, and the removal of a specific set of pre-installed apps as well as the installation of the Device Protection Manager and the Knox License Activation Tool. In addition, patches for software updates for vulnerabilities are prepared as required by various policies and MDF requirements, which constitute the only security-related changes to the TOE. Because this device is not intended to use a SIM card, the updates are provided directly from the vendor and is not impacted by carrier delays to deploy patches. The rest of the features listed above are new non-security features that were considered to be outside the scope of the MDF evaluation.
