Checklist Summary:

The Apple iOS/iPadOS 14 Security Technical Implementation Guide (STIG) provides the technical security policies, requirements, and implementation details for applying security concepts to Apple devices running iOS/iPadOS 14 that process, store, or transmit unclassified data marked as “Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI)” or below. The STIG is based on the Protection Profile for Mobile Device Fundamentals (MDFPP) version 3.1 STIG Template. Requirements compliance is achieved by leveraging a combination of configuration profiles, user-based enforcement (UBE), and reporting. 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. The office of the Department of Defense (DoD) Chief Information Officer (CIO) is developing a DoD way forward and business case for BYOD, and the BYOD and/or CYOD use cases may be included in a future version of the STIG. This STIG assumes that for the COPE use case, the technology used for data separation between work apps, data and personal apps, and data that has been certified by the National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP) is 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 only data separation technology or application that is NIAP-certified for an Apple iOS/iPadOS device is the native iOS/iPadOS managed – unmanaged application technology. Refer to Section 3.5, “Apps”, in the STIG Supplemental document for more information. The configuration requirements and controls implemented by this STIG allow unrestricted activity by the user in downloading and installing personal (unmanaged) 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 2.9 Configuration of Unmanaged Apps, for more information. Note: If the AO has approved the use/storage of DoD data in one or more personal (unmanaged) apps, allowing unrestricted activity by the user in downloading and installing personal (unmanaged) apps on the iOS/iPadOS 14 device may not be warranted due to the risk of possible loss of or unauthorized access to DoD data. This STIG assumes that if a DoD Wi-Fi network allows an iOS/iPadOS mobile device to connect to a DoD network, the Wi-Fi network complies with the Network Infrastructure STIG; for example, wireless access points and bridges must not be directly connected to the enclave network.
