Check Contents

This validation procedure is performed on both the MDM Administration Console and the Samsung Knox for Android device.

Check whether the appropriate setting is configured on the MDM Administration Console:
1. Ask the MDM administrator to display the "Application install blacklist" setting in the "Android Knox Container -> Container Application" rule.
2. Verify the setting is configured to all applications (specified by the wildcard string ".*").

On the Samsung Knox for Android device:
1. Attempt to install any application that is not configured in the application install whitelist.
