The Target of Evaluation is a Secure Element. The TOE is dedicated to be used in highly critical hardware devices such as smart card, secure element, USB token, secure micro SD, etc. These devices will embed secure applications such as financial, telecommunication, identity (e-Government), etc and will be working in a hostile environment. In particular, the TOE is dedicated to host the code and data of critical applications.
The security needs for the TOE consist in:
- Maintaining the integrity of the content of the Security IC memories and the confidentiality of the content of protected memory areas as required by the application(s) the Security IC is built for;
- Maintaining the correct execution of the software residing on the Security IC;
