Protection Profile [PDF]

Validation Report [PDF]



This PP specifies the minimum-security requirements for Anti-Virus Applications (i.e., the Target of Evaluation (TOE)) used on workstations in the US Government in Basic Robustness Environments. The Anti-Virus Application provides protection against viruses coming into the workstation from network connections and/or removable media, and is considered sufficient protection for environments where the likelihood of an attempted compromise is low. The target robustness level of "basic" is discussed in Section 3.0 of this PP. STs claiming compliance may consist of software only.

The PP defines the requirements for a general-purpose Anti-Virus Application that may be used in a variety of systems. Relative to these requirements the PP includes:

  • Assumptions about the security aspects of the environment in which the TOE will be used;
  • Threats that are to be addressed by the TOE;
  • Security objectives of the TOE and its environment;
  • Functional and assurance requirements to meet those security objectives; and
  • Rationale demonstrating how the requirements meet the security objectives, and how the security objectives address the threats.
