EMC Isilon® OneFS® v7.2.0.4 from EMC Corporation, was the subject of a Common Criteria evaluation performed by the Common Criteria Evaluation Facility at EWA-Canada The evaluation was completed in December 2015.

The evaluation of EMC Isilon® OneFS® v7.2.0.4 determined that this Information Technology (IT) product can be trusted, to EAL 2+ (ALC_FLR.2), to conform to the requirements of the associated security target.

EMC Isilon® OneFS® v7.2.0.4 combines the three layers of storage architecture—file system, volume manager, and data protection – into a scale-out NAS cluster. Each node adds resources to the cluster. Because each node contains globally coherent RAM, as a cluster becomes larger, it becomes faster. Meanwhile, the file system expands dynamically and redistributes content, which eliminates the work of partitioning disks and creating volumes. Segmenting and distributing data —a process known as striping—not only protects data, but also enables a user connecting to any node to take advantage of the entire cluster's performance.

The TOE uses distributed software to scale data across commodity hardware. Nodes work as peers to spread data across the cluster. No master device controls the cluster; no slaves invoke dependencies. Instead, each node helps control data requests, boosts performance, and expands the cluster's capacity.

The scope of this evaluation is defined by the security target, which identifies assumptions made during the evaluation, the intended environment for the EMC Isilon® OneFS® v7.2.0.4, the IT security requirements to be met, and the level of confidence (evaluation assurance level) to which it is asserted that the EMC Isilon® OneFS® v7.2.0.4 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 EMC Isilon® OneFS® v7.2.0.4.
