• Determination Statement

    Mobile devices and mobile computing platforms that process, store, or transmit CUI are identified.

  • Requirement

    Encrypt CUI on mobile devices and mobile computing platforms.

  • Requirement Discussion

    Organizations can employ full-device encryption or container-based encryption to protect the confidentiality of CUI on mobile devices and computing platforms. Container-based encryption provides a more fine-grained approach to the encryption of data and information including encrypting selected data structures such as files, records, or fields. See [NIST CRYPTO]. [23] Mobile devices and computing platforms include, for example, smartphones and tablets.
