Herewith a brief summary, sufficiently detailed to enable a potential user to detemine whether the PP is of interest.

The family of Protection Profiles describes the Information Technology (IT) security requirements for PKE Applications, based on the X.509 standard, integrated into computing platforms or systems. Public key technology provides digital signature generation and verification, public/private key encryption and decryption, public key distribution services, and various support functions. A PKE application may provide confidentiality, integrity, authentication, and non-repudiation, based on the use of public key technology security services. A variety of applications may be PK-enabled. This family of PPs defines different PK services. Thousands of possible PPs may be defined depending upon the combination of functional packages and the EAL chosen to meet the requirements of the application. Many functional requirements in the PPs represent extension to the Common Criteria because the CC does not provide requirements for the X.509 processing rules that are critical to this family of PPs.
