Discussion

Passwords provide a form of access control that prevents unauthorized individuals from accessing computing resources and sensitive data. Passwords may also be a source of entropy for generation of key encryption or data encryption keys. If a password is not required to access data, then this data is accessible to any adversary who obtains physical possession of the device. Requiring that a password be successfully entered before the mobile device data is unencrypted mitigates this risk.

Note: MDF PP v.2.0 requires a Password Authentication Factor and requires management of its length and complexity. It leaves open whether the existence of a password is subject to management. This STIGID addresses the configuration to require a password, which is critical to the cybersecurity posture of the device.

SFR ID: FIA_UAU_EXT.1.1

Checks

Review BlackBerry OS 10.3 configuration settings to determine if a valid password has been successfully entered before the mobile device data is unencrypted. This procedure is performed on both the BES console and on a managed mobile device.

Note: If an organization has multiple configuration profiles, then the Validation procedure must be performed on the relevant configuration profiles applicable to the scope of the review.

On the BES 12, do the following:
1. Log into the BES 12 console and select the "POLICIES AND PROFILES” tab at the top of the screen.
2. Expand the “IT policies” tab on the left pane.
3. Select and open each IT policy assigned to users in turn.
4. After opening the policy, select the “Setting” and “BlackBerry” tabs.

Discussion

Password strength is a measure of the effectiveness of a password in resisting guessing and brute force attacks. The ability to crack a password is a function of how many attempts an adversary is permitted, how quickly an adversary can do each attempt, and the size of the password space. The longer the minimum length of the password is, the larger the password space. Having a too-short minimum password length significantly reduces password strength, increasing the chance of password compromise and resulting device and data compromise.

SFR ID: FMT_SMF_EXT.1.1 #01a

Checks

Review BlackBerry OS 10.3 configuration settings to determine if a minimum password length of 6 characters is enforced. This procedure is performed on both the BES console and on a managed mobile device.

2. Expand the “IT policies” tab on the left pane.
3. Select and open each IT policy assigned to users in turn.
4. After opening the policy, select the “Setting” and “BlackBerry” tabs.
5. Scroll down to the “Password” group of IT policy rules.
6. Verify "Minimum password length" is set to "6".

On the BlackBerry device:
1a. For "Work-Only" activation type: navigate to Settings >> Security and Privacy >> Device Password and select "Change Password".
1b. For "Work and personal - Corporate" and "Work and personal - Regulated" activation types: navigate to Settings >> Security and Privacy >> Device Password and select "BlackBerry Balance" and select "Change Password".
2. Authenticate using the current password.
3. Attempt to change the password to a length of less than 6 characters.
4. Select "Password Rules" and verify the message "Your password must be at least 6 characters." is displayed.

If the BES IT policy rule "Minimum Password Length" is not set to "6", or the BlackBerry device allows a new password to be set with less than 6 characters, this is a finding.

Note: Procedures above are for BES 12 only. BES 10 procedures may be slightly different.

Discussion

The screen lock timeout must be set to a value that helps protect the device from unauthorized access. Having a too-long timeout would increase the window of opportunity for adversaries who gain physical access to the mobile device through loss, theft, etc. Such devices are much more likely to be in an unlocked state when acquired by an adversary, thus granting immediate access to the data on the mobile device. The maximum timeout period of 15 minutes has been selected to balance functionality and security; shorter timeout periods may be appropriate depending on the risks posed to the mobile device.

SFR ID: FMT_SMF_EXT.1.1 #01b

Checks

Review BlackBerry OS 10.3 configuration settings to determine if the Work Space locks after 15 minutes (or less) of inactivity. This procedure is performed on both the BES console and on a managed mobile device.

Discussion

The more attempts an adversary has to guess a password, the more likely the adversary will enter the correct password and gain access to resources on the device. Setting a limit on the number of attempts mitigates this risk. Setting the limit at 10 gives authorized users the ability to make a few mistakes when entering the password but still provides adequate protection against dictionary or brute force attacks on the password.

SFR ID: FMT_SMF_EXT.1.1 #02

Checks

Review BlackBerry OS 10.3 configuration settings to determine if the BlackBerry allows more than 10 consecutive failed authentication attempts. This procedure is performed on both the BES console and on a managed mobile device.

Discussion

Having wireless remote access connections enabled could allow establishment of unauthorized remote access connections, which may give an adversary unintended capabilities. These remote access connections would expose the mobile device to additional risk, thereby increasing the likelihood of compromise of the confidentiality and integrity of its resident data. In this context, tethering refers to wired connections to an external device and not use of the device as a hotspot. A mobile device providing personal hotspot functionality is not considered wireless remote access if the functionality only provides access to a distribution network (such as a mobile carrier's cellular data network) and does not provide access to local applications or data.

SFR ID: FMT_SMF_EXT.1.1 #23

Checks

Review BlackBerry OS 10.3 configuration settings to determine if the BlackBerry does not allow protocols supporting wireless remote access connections. This procedure is performed only on the BES console.

Discussion

Developer modes expose features of the BlackBerry device that are not available during standard operation. When the Development Mode is enabled on BlackBerry 10 OS devices, the user has the capability to sideload apps to either the Work Space or Personal Space. Disabling this feature removes the capability for a user to sideload apps. An adversary may leverage a vulnerability inherent in a developer mode to compromise the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of DoD-sensitive information. Disabling developer modes mitigates this risk.

Discussion

The BlackBerry device must ensure the data being written to the mobile device's removable media is protected from unauthorized access. If data at rest is unencrypted, it is vulnerable to disclosure. Even if the operating system enforces permissions on data access, an adversary can read removable media directly, thereby circumventing operating system controls. Encrypting the data ensures confidentiality is protected even when the operating system is not running.

Discussion

The BlackBerry OS 10.3 is required to display the DoD-approved system use notification message or banner before granting access to the system that provides privacy and security notices consistent with applicable federal laws, Executive Orders, directives, policies, regulations, standards, and guidance. Required banners help ensure that DoD can audit and monitor the activities of mobile device users without legal restriction.

System use notification messages can be displayed when individuals first access or unlock the mobile device. The banner shall be implemented as a "click-through" banner at device unlock (to the extent permitted by the operating system). A "click through" banner prevents further activity on the information system unless and until the user executes a positive action to manifest agreement by clicking on a box indicating “OK.”

The approved DoD text must be used exactly as required in the KS referenced in DoDI 8500.01. For devices accommodating banners of 1300 characters, the banner text is:

You are accessing a U.S. Government (USG) Information System (IS) that is provided for USG-authorized use only.
By using this IS (which includes any device attached to this IS), you consent to the following conditions:
-The USG routinely intercepts and monitors communications on this IS for purposes including, but not limited to, penetration testing, COMSEC monitoring, network operations and defense, personnel misconduct (PM), law enforcement (LE), and counterintelligence (CI) investigations.
-At any time, the USG may inspect and seize data stored on this IS.
-Communications using, or data stored on, this IS are not private, are subject to routine monitoring, interception, and search, and may be disclosed or used for any USG-authorized purpose.
-This IS includes security measures (e.g., authentication and access controls) to protect USG interests--not for your personal benefit or privacy.
-Notwithstanding the above, using this IS does not constitute consent to PM, LE or CI investigative searching or monitoring of the content of privileged communications, or work product, related to personal representation or services by attorneys, psychotherapists, or clergy, and their assistants. Such communications and work product are private and confidential. See User Agreement for details.

For devices with severe character limitations, the banner text is:

I've read & consent to terms in IS user agreem't.

The administrator must configure the banner text exactly as written without any changes.

Discussion

Many software systems automatically send diagnostic data to the manufacturer or a third party. This data enables the developers to understand real world field behavior and improve the product based on that information. Unfortunately, it can also reveal information about what DoD users are doing with the systems and what causes them to fail. An adversary embedded within the software development team or elsewhere could use the information acquired to breach BlackBerry OS 10.3 smartphone security. Disabling automatic transfer of such information mitigates this risk.

Requiring all authorized applications to be in an application whitelist prevents the execution of any applications (e.g., unauthorized, malicious) that are not part of the whitelist. Failure to configure an application whitelist properly could allow unauthorized and malicious applications to be downloaded, installed, and executed on the mobile device, causing a compromise of DoD data accessible by these applications.

FOTA allows the user to download and install firmware updates over-the-air. These updates can include OS upgrades, security patches, bug fixes, new features and applications. Since the updates are controlled by the carriers, DoD will not have an opportunity to review and update policies prior to update availability to end users. Disabling FOTA will mitigate the risk of allowing users access to applications that could compromise DoD sensitive data. After reviewing the update and adjusting any necessary policies (i.e., disabling applications determined to pose risk), the administrator can re-enable FOTA.

The contact database often contains a significant amount of information beyond each person's name and phone number. The records may contain addresses and other identifying or sensitive information that should not be revealed. There may be cases in which an organization has determined it is an acceptable risk to distribute parts of a person's contact record but not others. Enabling the system administrator to select which fields are available outside the contact database application (or to applications outside the work persona in the case of a dual persona device) assists with management of the risk.

Discussion

Password strength is a measure of the effectiveness of a password in resisting guessing and brute-force attacks. The ability to crack a password is a function of how many attempts an adversary is permitted, how quickly an adversary can do each attempt, and the size of the password space. The longer the minimum length of the password is, the larger the password space. Having a too-short minimum password length significantly reduces password strength, increasing the chance of password compromise and resulting device and data compromise. A password is required for the Personal Space to stop access to the BlackBerry desktop by an unauthorized person. This is a mobile security best practice control.
