What is the difference between refinement and explicit requirements?
Any change to an existing CC requirement (from Part 2 or Part 3) is either a refinement or an extension. In order for a change to be a refinement, in lieu of an extension, the change must satisfy both the following conditions:
a TOE meeting the changed requirement would also meet the unchanged requirement, as interpreted in the context of a particular PP or ST; and the changed requirement does not extend the scope of the original.
The CC v2.1, Part 1, section 18.104.22.168 is updated per interpretation 019.Rationale
