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.


The Target of Evaluation (TOE) in this Package is a product which acts as a TLS client or server, or both. This Package describes the security functionality of TLS in terms of CC.

The contents of this Package must be appropriately combined with a PP or PP-Module. When this Package is instantiated by a PP or PP-Module, the Package must include selection-based requirements in accordance with the selections or assignments indicated in the PP or PP-Module.
