Protection Profiles and Security Targets for CC 3.0

Abstract:

In CC v3.0, the criteria for Protection Profiles and Security Targets have been significantly updated. They are based on the new framework (see "The new conceptual framework for CC v3.0"), and therefore easier to understand and apply. In addition, many sections were removed or reduced, making them less work to write and maintain. The use of Protection Profiles and Security Targets by its various audiences has been clarified, and the role that various sections of the PP/ST play in supporting this use has been outlined. Finally, a PP/ST for Low Assurance has been introduced: a PP/ST with reduced content requirements for use at EAL 1.
