Checklist Summary:

The Google Android 12 Security Technical Implementation Guide (STIG) provides the technical security policies, requirements, and implementation details for applying security concepts to Google Android devices running Android 12 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 3.2 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 Corporate Owned Personally Enabled (COPE) and Corporate Owned Business Only (COBO)1 use cases. This STIG assumes that for the COPE use cases, 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 MDFPP2. As of the publication date of this STIG, the only data separation technology or application that is NIAP-certified for a Google Android 12 device is the native Android Enterprise work profile technology. 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 6.2, “Configuration of Personal Space”, for more information. Zero-touch enrollment enables large-scale Android deployments across multiple device makers so organizations can mobilize their employees with ease. Zero-touch enrollment allows DoD mobile service providers to deploy corporate-owned devices (COBO and COPE) in bulk without having to manually set up each device. It is recommended that DoD mobile service providers consider deploying all Google Android devices via the zero-touch enrollment service to improve enterprise management, control, and enrollment of DoD-owned Google Android 12 phones and tablets (see Section 2.9.2 in the Supplemental document).
