PP-Configuration for MDF-VPNC_V1.0
The scope of this PP-Module is to describe the security functionality of a virtual private network (VPN) client in terms of [CC] and to define functional and assurance requirements for such products. This PP-Module is intended for use with the following Base-PPs:
· Protection Profile for General Purpose Operating Systems (GPOS PP); or
· Protection Profile for Mobile Device Fundamentals (MDF PP); or
· Protection Profile for Application Software (App PP).
These Base-PPs are all valid because a VPN client may be a specific type of stand-alone software application or a built-in component of an operating system, whether desktop or mobile. Regardless of which Base-PP is claimed, the VPN client functionality defined by this PP-Module will rely on the Base-PP. Sections 5.1, 5.2, and 5.3 of this PP-Module describe the relevant functionality for each Base-PP, including specific selections, assignments, or inclusion of optional requirements that must be made as needed to support the VPN client functionality.
