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?

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

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

  • And what is the origin? the Application Package? – TheGoodUser Apr 15 '15 at 6:38

    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. – Catija Apr 15 '15 at 6:41
  • excuse me, in the same sentences : application package contained in the information : the information are in the application package or the application package is inside the information? – TheGoodUser Apr 15 '15 at 10:06
