EMC® ViPR® Controller v2.1.0.3 (hereafter referred to as EMC® ViPR®), 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 November 2015.

The evaluation of EMC® ViPR® determined that this Information Technology (IT) product can be trusted, to Evaluation Assurance Level (EAL) 2 + ALC_FLR.2, to conform to the requirements of the associated security target.

EMC® ViPR® is a storage management virtual appliance product that is capable of managing external storage resources of different types and supporting different storage protocols. EMC® ViPR® Controller allows administrators a single point of management for their entire storage network.

The TOE provides access to provision and backup external storage in the form of a Virtual Data Center (VDC). Within a VDC there are one or more tenants, each tenant representing a specific user or user group. A tenant allows the storage to be managed and provisioned on a per-tenant basis. In a multi-tenant environment, each tenant is configured to use specific resources within the VDC, and users are mapped to particular tenants. This allows the storage allocated to a given group within an organization to be isolated from other groups. Projects are tenant resources and are created within a tenant. All file and block resources provisioned using EMC® ViPR® must be associated with a project.

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