This Extended Package (EP) describes security requirements for a network device that implements Media Access Control Security (MACsec) encryption to secure communications over a trusted channel and is intended to provide a minimal, baseline set of requirements that are targeted at mitigating well defined and described threats. However, this EP is not complete in itself, but rather extends the Security Requirements for Network Devices collaborative Protection Profile (NDcPP).
This EP specifically addresses MACsec, which allows authorized systems using Ethernet Transport to maintain confidentiality of transmitted data and to take measures against frames that are transmitted or modified by unauthorized devices.
