This document specifies the security requirements for physically unclonable functions (PUFs). Specified security requirements concern the output properties, tamper-resistance and unclonability of a single and a batch of PUFs. Since it depends on the application which security requirements a PUF needs to meet, this documents also describes the typical use cases of a PUF. Amongst PUF use cases, random number generation is out of scope in this document.

This document specifies a methodology for the evaluation of non-deterministic or deterministic random bit generators intended to be used for cryptographic applications. The provisions given in this document enable the vendor of an RBG to submit well-defined claims of security to an evaluation authority and shall enable an evaluator or a tester, for instance a validation authority, to evaluate, test, certify or reject these claims. This document is implementation-agnostic. Hence, it offers no specific guidance on design and implementation decisions for random bit generators. However, design and implementation issues influence the evaluation of an RBG in this document, for instance because it requires the use of a stochastic model of the random source and because any such model is supported by technical arguments pertaining to the design of the device at hand. Random bit generators as evaluated in this document aim to output bit strings that appear evenly distributed. Depending on the distribution of random numbers required by the consuming application, however, it is worth noting that additional steps can be necessary (and can well be critical to security) for the consuming application to transform the random bit strings produced by the RBG into random numbers of a distribution suitable to the application requirements. Such subsequent transformations are outside the scope of evaluations performed in this document.

This document provides recommendations and checklists which can be used to support the specification and operational testing of cryptographic modules in their operational environment within an organization's security system. The cryptographic modules have four security levels which ISO/IEC 19790 defines to provide for a wide spectrum of data sensitivity (e.g. low-value administrative data, million-dollar funds transfers, life-protecting data, personal identity information, and sensitive information used by government) and a diversity of application environments (e.g. a guarded facility, an office, removable media, and a completely unprotected location). This document includes: a) recommendations to perform secure assessing for cryptographic module installation, configuration and operation; b) recommendations to inspecting the key management system, protection of authentication credentials, and public and critical security parameters in the operational environment; c) recommendations for identifying cryptographic module vulnerabilities; d) checklists for the cryptographic algorithm policy, security guidance and regulation, security manage requirements, security level for each of the 11 requirement areas, the strength of the security function, etc.; and e) recommendations to determine that the cryptographic module's deployment satisfies the security requirements of the organization. This document assumes that the cryptographic module has been validated as conformant with ISO/IEC 19790. It can be used by an operational tester along with other recommendations if needed. This document is limited to the security related to the cryptographic module. It does not include assessing the security of the operational or application environment. It does not define techniques for the identification, assessment and acceptance of the organization's operational risk.

Physical security mechanisms are employed by cryptographic modules where the protection of the modules sensitive security parameters is desired. ISO/IEC TS 30104:2015 addresses how security assurance can be stated for products where the risk of the security environment requires the support of such mechanisms. This Technical Specification addresses the following topics: - a survey of physical security attacks directed against different types of hardware embodiments including a description of known physical attacks, ranging from simple attacks that require minimal skill or resources, to complex attacks that require trained, technical people and considerable resources; - guidance on the principles, best practices and techniques for the design of tamper protection mechanisms and methods for the mitigation of those attacks; and - guidance on the evaluation or testing of hardware tamper protection mechanisms and references to current standards and test programs that address hardware tamper evaluation and testing. The information in ISO/IEC TS 30104:2015 is useful for product developers designing hardware security implementations, and testing or evaluation of the final product. The intent is to identify protection methods and attack methods in terms of complexity, cost and risk to the assets being protected. In this way cost effective protection can be produced across a wide range of systems and needs.

ISO/IEC 19792:2009 specifies the subjects to be addressed during a security evaluation of a biometric system. It covers the biometric-specific aspects and principles to be considered during the security evaluation of a biometric system. It does not address the non-biometric aspects which might form part of the overall security evaluation of a system using biometric technology (e.g. requirements on databases or communication channels). ISO/IEC 19792:2009 does not aim to define any concrete methodology for the security evaluation of biometric systems but instead focuses on the principal requirements. As such, the requirements in ISO/IEC 19792:2009 are independent of any evaluation or certification scheme and will need to be incorporated into and adapted before being used in the context of a concrete scheme. ISO/IEC 19792:2009 defines various areas that are important to be considered during a security evaluation of a biometric system. ISO/IEC 19792:2009 is relevant to both evaluator and developer communities. It specifies requirements for evaluators and provides guidance on performing a security evaluation of a biometric system. It serves to inform developers of the requirements for biometric security evaluations to help them prepare for security evaluations. Although ISO/IEC 19792:2009 is independent of any specific evaluation scheme it could serve as a framework for the development of concrete evaluation and testing methodologies to integrate the requirements for biometric evaluations into existing evaluation and certification schemes.

ISO/IEC 24759:2008 specifies the methods to be used by testing laboratories to test whether a cryptographic module conforms to the requirements specified in ISO/IEC 19790:2006. The methods are developed to provide a high degree of objectivity during the testing process and to ensure consistency across the testing laboratories. Within each subclause of the security requirements clause of ISO/IEC 24759:2008, the corresponding security requirements from ISO/IEC 19790:2006 are divided into a set of assertions (i.e. statements that have to be true for the module to satisfy the requirement of a given area at a given level). All of the assertions are direct quotations from ISO/IEC 19790:2006. Following each assertion is a set of requirements levied on the vendor. These specify the types of documentation or explicit information that the vendor is required to provide in order for the tester to verify conformance to the given assertion. Also following each assertion and the requirements levied on the vendor is a set of requirements levied on the tester of the cryptographic module. These specify what the tester needs to do in order to test the cryptographic module with respect to the given assertion. Vendors can use ISO/IEC 24759:2008 as guidance in trying to verify whether their cryptographic modules satisfy the requirements specified in ISO/IEC 19790:2006 before they apply to the testing laboratory for testing.

ISO/IEC 19790:2006 specifies the security requirements for a cryptographic module utilized within a security system protecting sensitive information in computer and telecommunication systems. ISO/IEC 19790:2006 specifies the following. Four levels of increasing security for cryptographic modules. Each level offers an increase in security over the preceding level. The following functional security objectives: module specification; ports and interfaces; roles, services and authentication; finite state model; physical security; operational environment; cryptographic key management; self-tests; design assurance; mitigation of other attacks. ISO/IEC 19790:2006 will be complemented by a future International Standard defining the associated evaluation and test methods. ISO/IEC 19790:2006 is derived from NIST Federal Information Processing Standard PUB 140-2 May 25, 2001.

ISO/IEC 15408-1:2005 defines two forms for expressing IT security functional and assurance requirements. The protection profile (PP) construct allows creation of generalized reusable sets of these security requirements. The PP can be used by prospective consumers for specification and identification of products with IT security features which will meet their needs. The security target (ST) expresses the security requirements and specifies the security functions for a particular product or system to be evaluated, called the target of evaluation (TOE). The ST is used by evaluators as the basis for evaluations conducted in accordance with ISO/IEC 15408.

ISO/IEC TR 15443-2:2005 describes a variety of IT security assurance methods and approaches and relates them to the IT security assurance framework in ISO/IEC TR 15443-1. The emphasis is to identify qualitative properties of the assurance methods and elements that contribute to assurance, and where possible, to define assurance ratings. This material is intended for IT security professionals for the understanding of how to obtain assurance in a given life-cycle stage of a product or service. The objective is to describe and categorize assurance methods and approaches in a manner enabling a review of their comparable and synergetic properties. This will facilitate selection of the appropriate assurance method or and possible combination of assurance methods for a given IT security product, system, or service and its specific environment.

ISO/IEC TR 15443 is a multi-part type 3 Technical Report to guide the IT security professional in the selection of an appropriate assurance method when specifying, selecting, or deploying a security service, product, or environmental factor such as an organization or personnel (known as a deliverable). The aim is to understand the assurance type and amount required to achieve confidence that the deliverable satisfies the stated IT security assurance requirements and consequently its security policy. ISO/IEC TR 15443-1:2005 describes the fundamentals of security assurance and its relation to other security concepts. This is to clarify why security assurance is required and dispel common misconceptions such as that increased assurance is gained by increasing the strength of a security mechanism. The framework includes a categorization of assurance types and a generic lifecycle model to identify the appropriate assurance types required for the deliverable with respect to the deliverable's lifecycle. The model also demonstrates how security assurance must be managed throughout the deliverable's lifecycle requiring assurance decisions to be made by several assurance authorities for the lifecycle stage relevant to their organization (i.e. developer, standards, consumer). The framework has been developed to be general enough to accommodate different assurance types and map into any lifecycle approach so as not to dictate any particular design. Advanced security assurance concepts, such as combining security assurance methods, are addressed briefly as they are to be addressed in later parts of ISO/IEC TR 15443. ISO/IEC TR 15443 targets IT security managers and other security professionals responsible for developing a security assurance program, engineering security into a deliverable, determining the security assurance of their deliverable, entering an assurance assessment audit (e.g. ISO 9000, SSE-CMM (ISO/IEC 21827), ISO/IEC 15408-3), or other assurance activities.

ISO/IEC TR 15446:2004 provides guidance relating to the construction of Protection Profiles (PPs) and Security Targets (STs) that are intended to be compliant with ISO/IEC 15408 (the "Common Criteria"). ISO/IEC TR 15446:2004 gives suggestions on how to develop each section of a PP or ST. It is supported by an annex that contains generic examples of each type of PP and ST component, and by other annexes that contain detailed worked examples. ISO/IEC TR 15446:2004 is primarily aimed at those who are involved in the development of PPs and STs. However, it is also likely to be useful to evaluators of PPs and STs and to those who are responsible for monitoring PP and ST evaluation. It may also be of interest to consumers and users of PPs and STs who wish to understand what guidance the PP/ST author used, and which parts of the PP or ST are of principal interest.
