Fix Recommendation

Configure the DoD warning banner by either of the following methods (required text is found in the Vulnerability Discussion):

- Method #1: Place the DoD warning banner text in the user agreement signed by each Samsung device user.
- Method #2: Configure Samsung Android to display the DoD-mandated warning banner text.

Use either Method #1 (preferred method) or Method #2.

****

Method #1: Include the DoD warning banner text in the user agreement that will be signed by each Samsung device user.

****

Method #2: On the MDM console, for the device, in the "Knox banner" group, configure the "banner text" with the DoD-mandated warning banner text.

Note: On some MDM consoles, the Knox banner is automatically enabled while the Samsung Android device is enrolled. In this case, the above guidance is not applicable.

Check Contents

Confirm if Method #1 or Method #2 is used at the Samsung device site and follow the appropriate procedure.

****

Method #1: Review the signed user agreements for several Samsung device users and verify that the agreement includes the required DoD warning banner text.

If the required DoD warning text is not included in all reviewed signed user agreements, this is a finding.

****

Method #2: This procedure is performed on both the MDM Administration console and the Samsung Android device.

On the MDM console, for the device, in the "Knox banner" group, verify that the "banner text" is configured with the required DoD warning banner text.

On the Samsung Android device, verify that that after a reboot the required DoD warning banner text is displayed.

If on the MDM console the "banner text" is not configured with the required DoD warning banner text, or after a reboot the required DoD warning banner text is not displayed on the Samsung Android device, this is a finding.
