The Target of Evaluation (TOE) is the Cisco Adaptive Security Appliances 9.1(2).
The Cisco Adaptive Security Appliances (Cisco ASA) consists of both hardware and software solutions to provide application-aware stateful packet filtering firewalls. A stateful packet filtering firewall controls the flow of IP traffic by matching information contained in the headers of connection-oriented or connection-less IP packets against a set of rules specified by the authorised administrator for firewalls.
The Cisco ASA can operate in a number of modes: as a single standalone device with a single-context, or with multiple-contexts within each single/pair; as a transparent firewall when deployed in a single-context, or with one or more contexts connected to two or many IP subnets when configured in router mode.
For management purposes, the Adaptive Security Device Manager (ASDM) is included. ASDM allows the ASA to be managed from a graphical user interface.
19 Dec 2014: Assurance maintenance conducted on TOE to version 9.1(5.12) with ASDM 7.1(6).
