The TOE provides the security functions required by the Protection Profile for Application Software Version 1.3 (PP_APP_v1.3) and Extended Package for Web Browsers Version 2.0 (PP_APP_WEBBROWSER_EP_v2.0).
The platform provides TLS/HTTPS connectivity for users attempting to communicate with secure URLs. The TOE does not directly perform any cryptographic functions. The TOE invokes the platform cryptography for secure credential storage.
User Data Protection
The TOE requests access to network connectivity, camera, microphone, location services, and address book, and communicates with the wireless network when invoked by the user. The TOE runs inside of a sandbox where each browser tab is isolated. In addition, the TOE supports blocking of third-party cookies. When a cookie has been set with the ‘secure’ attribute, the TOE will only send the cookie over HTTPS.
Identification and Authentication
The TOE uses platform-provided X.509 certificate validation functions to verify the validity and revocation status of HTTPS/TLS server certificates.
The platform provides the ability to configure the TOE. No credentials are installed by default.
The TOE itself does not request personally identifiable information (PII) from the user. Websites the TOE renders may request PII from the user; however, web page content is considered a general data field. Web page content may be transmitted over the network to a web server. If the user logs into their iCloud Account on two or more devices, two devices within Bluetooth range of each other have the ability to automatically “continue” browsing with the same URL provided via iCloud.
Protection of the TSF
The TOE is a software application. The TOE leverages the platform to establish HTTPS/TLS protected communications.
