 The TOE defined by this EP is the VPN client, a software application that runs on a physical or virtual host platform, used to establish a secure IPsec connection between that host platform and a remote system. The VPN client is intended to be located outside or inside of a private network, and establishes a secure tunnel to an IPsec peer. For the purposes of this EP, IPsec peers are defined as:

·         - VPN gateways,

·         - Other VPN clients, and/or

·         - An IPsec-capable network device (supporting IPsec for the purposes of management).

The tunnel provides confidentiality, integrity, and data authentication for information that travels across a less trusted (sometimes public) network. All VPN clients that comply with this document will support IPsec.

This EP extends the GPOS PP when the VPN client is installed on an operating system that is discussed in that PP (e.g., Windows, Mac OS, Linux). This EP extends the MDF PP when the VPN client is installed on a self-contained mobile device that is bundled with an operating system (e.g. Android, BlackBerry OS, iOS, Windows Mobile). This EP extends the App PP when the VPN client is provided by a third party and is a standalone application that is not a bundled part of an operating system or mobile device.
