Abstract

CSPP-OS provides a worked example of the guidance in NISTIR-6462 for the development of Common Criteria Protection Profiles for commercial off the shelf (COTS) information technology. The intended audience consists of those individuals and organizations in both government and private sectors who are tasked with the responsibility to develop or review Protection Profiles. This document is presented as a protection profile, followed by a rationale that is structured as a separate document. This format was selected to facilitate using this guidance as a template for the development of Protection Profiles.
