Protection Profile [PDF]



Stateful Traffic Filter Firewalls address a range of security threats related to infiltration into a protected network and exfiltration from a protected network. The term protected network is used here to represent an attached network for which rules are defined to control access. As such, a given Stateful Traffic Filter Firewall could potentially have a variety of attached protected and unprotected networks simultaneously depending on its specific configuration. Also, it should be clear that all attached networks are presumed to be protectable at the discretion of an authorized administrator.

Note that this EP does not repeat the threats identified in the NDPP, though they all apply given the conformance and hence dependence of this EP on the NDPP. Note also that while the NDPP contains only threats to the ability of the TOE to provide its security functions, this EP addresses only business threats to resources in the operational environment. Together the threats of the NDPP and those defined in this EP define the comprehensive set of security threats addressed by a Stateful Traffic Filter Firewall TOE.
