HP BladeSystem c7000 and c3000 Enclosure with Onboard Administrator (running firmware version 3.71), Virtual Connect (running firmware version 4.01), and HP Integrated Lights-Out 3 (version 1.50) (hereafter referred to as HP BladeSystem), from Hewlett-Packard Development Company, L.P., 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 October 2013.
The evaluation of HP BladeSystem determined that this Information Technology (IT) product can be trusted, to Evaluation Assurance Level (EAL) 4 augmented with ALC_FLR.2, to conform to the requirements of the associated security target.
HP BladeSystem implements the BladeSystem c-Class architecture, and is optimized for enterprise data center applications (c7000) and midmarket applications (c3000). The enclosures fit into standard 19 inch racks; accommodates BladeSystem c-Class server blades, storage blades, and interconnect modules; and provides all the power, cooling, and I/O infrastructure needed to support them. The Onboard Administrator, Virtual Connect, and iLO components provide the majority of BladeSystem functionality. The Onboard Administrator is a Linux-based appliance that performs four management functions for the entire enclosure:
- Detecting component insertion and removal
- Identifying components and required connectivity
- Managing power and cooling
- Controlling components
Virtual Connect technology is a set of interconnect modules and embedded software for c-Class enclosures that simplifies the setup and administration of server connections. The Integrated Lights-Out (iLO) management built into BladeSystem blade servers and storage blades is an autonomous management subsystem embedded directly on the server. iLO monitors each server’s overall status, reports issues, and provides a means for setup and managing of power and thermal settings.
The scope of this evaluation is defined by the security target, which identifies assumptions made during the evaluation, the intended environment for the HP BladeSystem, the IT security requirements to be met, and the level of confidence (evaluation assurance level) to which it is asserted that the HP BladeSystem 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 HP BladeSystem.
