The “U.S. Government Protection Profile for General-Purpose Operating Systems in a Networked Environment” specifies security requirements for commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) general-purpose operating systems in networked environments. This profile establishes the requirements necessary to achieve the security objectives of the Target of Evaluation (TOE) and its environment.
Conformant products support Identification and Authentication, Discretionary Access Control (DAC), and an audit capability and Cryptographic Services. These systems provide adequate security services, mechanisms, and assurances to process administrative, private, and sensitive/proprietary information. When an organization’s most sensitive/proprietary information is to be sent over a publicly accessed network, the organization should apply additional protection at the network boundaries.
