The requirements in this document apply to application software which runs on mobile devices ("apps"), as well as on desktop and server platforms. Some application types are covered by more specific PPs, which may be expressed as Extended Packages of this PP. Such applications are subject to the requirements of both this PP and the Extended Package that addresses their specialfunctionality. PPs for some particularly specialized applications may not be expressed as EPs at this time, though the requirements in this document should be seen as objectives for those highly specialized applications. Although the requirements in this document apply to a wide range of application software, consult guidance from the relevant national schemes to determine when formal Common Criteria evaluation is expected for a particular type of application. This may vary depending upon the nature of the security functionality of the application.

This U.S. Government Approved Protection Profile is not assigned to any Validated Products
