Checklist Summary:

The Samsung Android OS 7 with Knox 2.x Security Technical Implementation Guide (STIG) provides the technical security policies, requirements, and implementation details for applying security concepts to Samsung Android 7.x with Knox devices. The scope of this STIG covers only the Corporate Owned Personally Enabled (COPE) and Corporate Owned Business Only (COBO)1 use cases. The Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and Choose Your Own Device (CYOD)2 use cases are not in scope for this STIG. This STIG assumes that the COPE mobile device work only container is implemented using a technology or application that has been certified by the National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP) as compliant with the data separation requirements of the Protection Profile for Mobile Device Fundamentals (MDF)3. As of the publication date of this STIG, the Samsung Knox container is the only container technology or application that is NIAP certified for Samsung mobile devices. The configuration requirements and controls implemented by this STIG allow unrestricted activity by the user in downloading and installing personal apps and data (music, photos, etc.) with Authorizing Official (AO) approval and within any restrictions imposed by the AO. See the STIG Supplemental document, Section 2.3, Configuration of the Personal Space/Container for more information. This STIG assumes that if a DoD WiFi network allows a Samsung mobile device to connect to the network, the WiFi network complies with the Network Infrastructure STIG (for example, wireless access points and bridges must not be directly connected to the enclave network and the network must separate wireless access from other elements of the enclave network).
