This EP specifically addresses network-based Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS). A conformant IPS is a product that is connected to one or more distinct networks and is managed as part of an overall enterprise security solution. In particular, a compliant IPS provides network security administrators with the ability to monitor, collect, log, and react in real-time to potentially malicious network traffic. This EP is focused on inspecting IP traffic (TCP, UDP, ICMP, etc.). This limited scope is intentional for a number of reasons including: to define a reasonable boundary for the scope of testing (assurance measures) defined within the EP and to allow future EPs to address other IPS and functionality that includes scanners, analyzers, sensors, etc. The scope of the EP does not preclude support for inspection of other IP protocols (e.g. GRE, ESP, AH), but the scope of this EP does not include the evaluation of non-IP protocols including layer-2 protocols, or Ethernet.
As an EP of the NDcPP, it is expected that the content of both this EP and the NDcPP be appropriately combined in the context of each product-specific Security Target. This EP has been specifically defined such that there should be no difficulty or ambiguity in so doing. An ST must identify the applicable versions of the NDcPP (see http://www.niap-ccevs.org/pp/ for the current version) and this EP in its conformance claims.
When this EP is used to build on the NDcPP, conformant TOEs are obligated to implement the functionality required in the NDcPP along with the additional functionality defined in this EP in response to the threat environment discussed subsequently herein.
