Fortinet FortiOS 4.0 MR3 is a network operating system that runs on Fortinet routers and switches. Among other functions it can be used to establish Internet Protocol Security (IPSec) Virtual Private Network (VPN) tunnels. Fortinet's FortiGate Next Generation Security appliance is a proprietary hardware solution providing network security functionality. A component of this solution is the implementation of the IPSec suite of protocols. This allows administrators to create a Virtual Private Network (VPN) between trusted networks over an untrusted network such as the Internet.
The Target of Evaluation (TOE) is FortiGate NGFW appliances running FortiOS 5.4. The TOE is designed to provide next-generation firewall services ensuring network protection for Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) and Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) networks. The TOE is capable of robust filtering based on information contained in IPv4, IPv6, ICMPv4, ICMPv6, TCP and UDP headers as specified by their respective RFC’s. Additionally the TOE is capable of content inspection of FTP and H.323 protocols to work with the dynamic nature of these protocols.
