Statement of Volatility describes the type of data stored in both volatile and nonvolatile memory on Roos Instruments hardware and the location where the information is stored, such as EEPROMs or flash memory and also explain how to clear or sanitize the memory, if necessary.



Manufacturer: Roos Instruments

Model Number: Cassini16
Description: Automated Test Equipment

Description: Automated Test Equipment

Volatile Memory

Type: FPGA stored in each Test Instrument Module (TIM)
Battery Backup: No
User Accessible: No
System Accessible: Yes
Sanitation Procedure: Power Off

Non-Volatile Memory

Type: EEPROM stored in each TIM with Serial Number and Wear Factors, accessible only from the Saturn and Cassini Applications.
Battery Backup: No
User Accessible: No
System Accessible: Yes
Sanitation Procedure: Not Applicable

Procedures

To Identify Model: Locate the system Serial Number on the Infrastructure directly behind the manipulator tower and above the switch on the back panel. (See item 11 below)




To Power Off: Move the switch on the front panel to the 'OFF' position.

Terms and Definitions

Power Off:
The process of completely removing power from the TIM and its components and allowing for adequate discharge. This process includes a complete shutdown of the infrastructure containing the TIM or Fixture or physically unlatching from the system; a system check or reboot is not sufficient for the completion of this process.

Volatile Memory:
Requires power to maintain the stored information. When power is removed from this memory, its contents are lost. This type of memory typically contains application specific data such as capture waveforms.

Non-Volatile Memory:
Power is not required to maintain the stored information. Device retains its contents when power is removed. This type of memory typically contains information necessary to boot, configure, or calibrate the product or may include device power up states.

User Accessible:
The component is read and/or write addressable such that a user can store arbitrary information to the component from the host using Roos Instruments software.

System Accessible:
The component is read and/or write addressable from the host without the need to physically alter the product.

Clearing:
Per NIST Special Publication 800-88 Revision 1, “clearing” is a logical technique to sanitize data in all User Accessible storage locations for protection against simple non-invasive data recovery techniques using the same interface available to the user; typically applied through the standard read and write commands to the storage device.

Sanitization:
Per NIST Special Publication 800-88 Revision 1, “sanitization” is a process to render access to “Target Data” on the media infeasible for a given level of effort. In this document, clearing is the degree of sanitization described.

Tamper Proof:
TIM Volatile Memory is sanitized when the TIM is unlatched from the Test Head and the covers can not be removed without removing the TIM, preventing any tampering to access memory while active.
