Oracle Solaris 11.1 SRU5.5 (hereafter referred to as Solaris 11.1), from Oracle Corporation,  was the subject of a Common Criteria evaluation performed by the Common Criteria Evaluation Facility at CGI IT Security Evaluation & Test Facility. The evaluation was completed in February 2014.

The evaluation of Solaris 11.1 determined that this Information Technology (IT) product can be trusted, to Evaluation Assurance Level (EAL) 4 augmented with ALC_FLR.3, to conform to the requirements of the associated security target, and that it conforms with the following protection profile;

  • BSI Operating System Protection Profile v2.0, 2010-06-01 with the following extended packages;
    • Advanced Management v2.0, 2010-05-28;
    • Extended Identification and Authentication v2.0, 2010-05-28;
    • Labeled Security v2.0, 2010-05-28; and
    • Virtualization v2.0, 2010-05-28.

Solaris 11.1 is a configurable UNIX-based operating system that securely deploys services in traditional enterprise data centres, large scale cloud environments and small personal desktop use. The operating system includes services such as hardware resource management, and provides services for application software. The operating system is an intermediary between application programs and computer resources. It is responsible for managing processes, processor time, and storage allocation to allow operation of processes and application software.

The scope of this evaluation is defined by the security target, which identifies assumptions made during the evaluation, the intended environment for the Solaris 11.1, the IT security requirements to be met, and the level of confidence (evaluation assurance level) to which it is asserted that the Solaris 11.1 satisfies its IT security requirements.

Consumers are advised to carefully review the certification report to gain an understanding of the security functionality, the evaluated configuration, and the intended operating environment for Solaris 11.1.
