PP OVERVIEW

Herewith a brief summary, sufficiently detailed to enable a potential user to determine whether the PP is of interest.

This Protection Profile specifies U.S. Department of Defense minimum-security requirements for peripheral switches; devices, which enable a single set of human interface devices to be shared between multiple computers. The Protection Profile is consistent with Common Criteria.

SECURITY EVALUATION SUMMARY

Because a PP is written to be implementation-independent, there may be some ambiguities that do not arise until a specific implementation is being evaluated against it. When this happens, a resolution is established through the Observation Decision (OD) process in the form of a Precedent Decision (PD), which is to be used consistently in subsequent evaluations involving the PP in question. Precedent Decisions (PD-0093) specifically associated with this PP is included in version 2.0.:
