U.S. Government Approved Protection Profile - Functional Package for Transport Layer Security (TLS) Version 2.0
Short Name: pkg_tls_v2.0
Technology Type: Network Encryption
CC Version: 3.1
Preceded By: pkg_tls_v1.0
Conformance Claim: NoneFunctional Package
Transport Layer Security (TLS) and the closely-related Datagram TLS (DTLS) are cryptographic protocols designed to provide communications security over IP networks. The primary goal of the TLS protocol is to provide confidentiality and integrity of data transmitted between two communicating endpoints, as well as authentication of at least the server endpoint.
This "Functional Package for Transport Layer Security" (short name "TLS-PKG") defines functional requirements for the implementation of the Transport Layer Security (TLS) and Datagram TLS (DTLS) protocols. The requirements are intended to improve the security of products by enabling their evaluation.
SECURITY EVALUATION SUMMARY
