PP OVERVIEW

This PP specifies the DoD‘s information security needs for a Basic Robustness WLAN Client. It is expected that the wireless client will be a component in a larger system (for example, a wireless card installed in a laptop computer). This PP requires privacy and integrity of communications over the WLAN using commercially available cryptographic algorithms. Security administration is the responsibility of the user of each component (i.e., client). The assurance requirements defined in section 5.3 provide a minimal level of assurance for basic robustness environments; these include EAL2 Security Assurance Requirements (SARs) augmented with FLC_FLR.2 (Flaw Reporting Procedures) and AVA_MSU.1 (Examination of Guidance.)

This PP defines:

  • assumptions about the security aspects of the environment in which the TOE will be used;
  • threats that are to be addressed by the TOE;
  • security objectives of the TOE and its environment;
  • functional and assurance requirements to meet those security objectives; and
  • rationale demonstrating how the requirements meet the security objectives, and how the security objectives address the threats.

SECURITY EVALUATION SUMMARY

The evaluation was performed under the Common Criteria Evaluation and Validation Scheme (CCEVS). The purpose of the evaluation was to demonstrate that the U.S. Government Wireless LAN ClientProtection Profile for Basic Robustness Environments meets the APE security assurance requirements according to the Common Criteria for Information Technology Security Evaluation, Version 2.2 and Part 2 of the Common Methodology for Information Technology Security Evaluation, Version 1.0. The evaluation was completed on March 2006. The results of the U.S. Government Wireless LAN Client Protection Profile for Basic Robustness Environments evaluation can be found in U.S. Government Wireless LAN Client Protection Profile for Basic Robustness Environments Validation Report prepared by the CCEVS Validation Team.

The evaluation was completed in March 2006. Results of the evaluation can be found in the Validation Report prepared by the National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP) CCEVS-VR-06-0001 Access System.

ENVIRONMENTAL STRENGTHS

The evaluation of the U. S. Government Wireless LAN Client Protection Profile for Basic Robustness Environments, Version 1.0 provides specification for environments in which TOEs with various levels of robustness are appropriate to meet Basic Robustness level of independently assured security requirements. The assurance requirements were chosen to be consistent with this goal.
