The scope of this Protection Profile (PP)-Module is to describe the security functionality of a specific type of Peripheral Sharing Device (PSD) product in terms of Common Criteria for Information Technology Security Evaluation, version 3.1, Release 5 [CC] and to define functional and assurance requirements for such products.

A Target of Evaluation (TOE) claiming conformance to this PP-Module must also claim conformance to the Peripheral Sharing Device Protection Profile (PSD PP) as its Base-PP. This is because the PSD PP is a generic Protection Profile aimed at defining baseline requirements and Evaluation Activities for a wide variety of PSD products, but more specific requirements and Evaluation Activities apply depending on the types of physical and logical interfaces a PSD includes. Therefore, this PP-Module defines additional Security Functional Requirements (SFRs) for security functionality unique to a PSD that supports peripheral audio output devices.


A compliant Target of Evaluation (TOE) for this PP-Module is any PSD that supports connectivity between one or more computers and one or more analog audio output peripheral devices. All of the requirements and restrictions that are defined in the PSD PP apply to a conformant TOE. A conformant TOE satisfies all of the specific data protection/isolation capabilities that are required by the PSD PP.

A conformant TOE embodies one or more of the use cases defined in the PSD PP. It may also provide PSD functionality for additional types of computer interfaces (e.g., display, keyboard/mouse, user authentication device). In such a case, the TOE must claim conformance to all applicable PP-Modules to the PSD PP.
