This family of PPs 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 should be used to specify the various PK services. Thousands of PPs can be defined depending upon the combination of functional packages and the assurance level chosen to meet the requirements of the application. Many functional requirements in the PPs represent extensions to the Common Criteria (CC), because the CC does not provide requirements for the X.509 processing rules that are critical to this family of PPs.
