Section 3.3 Out of Scope

While we're not specifying a standard for any of the mechanisms or functionality in section 3.3, we do include a statement that impacts:

6.  Data Protection Policies

For instance, in section 6, "Conformance Requirements",  #2 and #3 deal specifically with items that would be included in a data protection policy

And in section 9 "Security Considerations", we again require integrity protection of the log information.

We may want to modify the "out of scope" section to state that we are placing requirements on data protection policies, but not including recommendations for a "soup to nuts" data protection policy for logging information (of course, "soup to nuts" may not be appropriate for the actual text, but hopefully you get the idea)

---------

By the way, the sentence in section 9 I'm referring to above is written as:

> Device MUST provide protection from alteration both on the device and when distributed outside the device.

IMHO, this wording should be more specific….something like:

Imaging devices MUST provide integrity protection for log message data, both on the device, as well as when the log data is transported outside the device.

The original text doesn't explicitly state what might be altered.
