Archived U.S. Government Approved Protection Profile - US Department of Defense Traffic-Filter Firewall Protection Profile for Medium Robustness Environments, Version 1.4

Medium Robustness Update

Please note that this PP was developed when “Medium Robustness” was defined as being of notably less assurance than it currently is. As such, although this PP (and products compliant to it) was considered “Medium Robustness” at the time of evaluation, it does not meet what we currently define Medium Robustness to be. For additional information on Robustness, see the Robustness FAQ .

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

This traffic-filter firewall Protection Profile defines the minimum security requirements for firewalls used by U.S Government organizations, including the Department of Defense, handling unclassified or sensitive but unclassified information for Mission-Critical Categories in a medium robustness environment. Firewalls may consist of one or more devices that act as part of an organization’s overall security defense by isolating an organization’s internal network from the Internet or other external networks. Firewalls pass and block information flows based on a set of screening rules defined by an authorized administrator. This Protection Profile applies to firewalls that are capable of screening network traffic at the network and transport protocol levels, authenticating the authorized administrator for actions at the firewall, and auditing security-relevant events that occur.

Sunset Date: A US Government Firewall Protection Profile for Medium Robustness Environments, ver 1.0, was validated on October 28, 2003 which supercedes the US Government Traffic-Filter Firewall Protection Profile for Medium Robustness Environments. This PP remains effective for products seeking conformance to it until April 30, 2005. After this date, no new evaluations will be accepted.
