    * Interface Description

    All interfaces identified in the Interface Overview must be specified in the Interface Description. By taking into consideration the type of the individual interface and the type of the corresponding architecture elements, the relevant information about use, syntax and semantics of the interface has to be documented.

    * Description of the Interfaces between the IT Security Measures and the Participating Architecture Elements

    The interfaces of the IT security measures to the participating architecture elements have to be documented.

    (1) Method FS is to be applied in case of special requirements with regard to correctness, e. g. based on very high criticality.

    (2) The methods have to be applied in object-oriented developments.

    (3) Method STMO is to be applied for the dynamic system modeling in object-oriented procedures.

    (4) A formal specification on two different abstraction levels is required for the application of DVER. Because of the great effort, the most critical portions of a specification have to be selected for which the DVER has to be applied. According to [ITSEC], method DVER is required for the proof of the formal security model with the evaluation level E4, for the proof of consistency between security model and preliminary design DVER is required with the evaluation level E6.

    (5) Method ACC must be applied according to [ITSEC].
