This package is required for the transition of a SLES8 with Service Pack 3 installation into the certified configuration (EAL3+).

Contraindications

None.

Description

This package (certification-sles-eal3) provides documentation, a script and a set of RPM packages for the EAL3+ security certification of SLES8 with Service Pack 3 (SP3). The included script can be used along the guidelines in the security guide to transfer the fresh installation of the SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 8 (SLES8), with Service Pack 3 installed, to the certified configuration.
As a starting point, please refer to README-eal3.txt that is included in the package as
/usr/share/doc/packages/certification-sles-eal3/README-eal3.txt
Contrary to the certification-sles-eal2 package for the successful certification of the SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 8 under the Common Criteria EAL2, this package contains components that are required at runtime in the system. After the script (as described in the README file above, or in the "SLES-security-guide" manpage) in /usr/lib/eal3/bin has been run and completed successfully, the package may be removed again, since the active components have been copied to the appropriate locations afterwards.
For more information about the Common Criteria Certification of the SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 8 (with Service Pack 3), please visit
