The iOS 4 Interim Security Configuration Guide (ISCG) was released on 20 October 2011. When approved by a Component CIO, an ISCG may be used to configure iOS devices for limited deployment, pilots and demonstrations. Enterprise-wide deployments for iOS devices will be authorized when a full STIG specific to those systems is approved. The DSAWG has not identified specific conditions that will allow the currently written iOS ISCG to be approved as a full STIG.
The iOS ISCG requires the use of the Good Technology Good For Enterprise mobile messaging solution, which includes a Good client application on the device where all email messages and attachments are stored in a FIPS 140-2 validated encrypted container. Biometrics Associates makes a Bluetooth smart card reader than can be used to support hard token S/MIME operations from within the Good client.
The complete iOS 4 ISCG is available at http://iase.disa.mil/stigs/net_perimeter/wireless/Pages/smartphone.aspx under ISCG for Apple iOS Devices.
