Page 79 of Mokard 2.2 (A smart card) security target :

The TSF shall be able to relate the identity of the originator of the information, and the application package contained in the information to which the evidence applies.

I want to know what is the reference of the word "evidence" in the above sentences?

In the other words, which one is correct:

  1. evidence applies to information, or
  2. evidence applies to the application package that contained in the information?

1 Answer 1


I believe that evidence is related to the evidence of origin from the preceding point.

The entire section is called "Enforced proof of origin".

    The origin is the origin... "the point or place where something begins, arises, or is derived." It's a safety measure to make sure that all requests come from legitimate sources, I guess... or to at least track where the request comes from, in the case it's not legitimate.
