iOS Hardening Configuration Guide

For iPod, iPhone and iPad running IOS 5.1 or higher

Australia's Defence Signals Directorate (DSD) has recently released iOS Hardening Configuration Guide which provides instructions and techniques for Australian government agencies to harden the security of iOS 5 devices.

Implementing the techniques and settings found in this document can affect system functionality, and may not be appropriate for every user or environment. However agencies wishing to differ from the mandatory controls specified in this guide must note that the product will no longer fall under the evaluated configuration.

In these cases, agencies should seek approval for non-compliance from their agency head and/or accreditation authority to allow for the formal acceptance of the risks involved. 

This guide is for users and administrators of iOS 5 or later devices. These devices include the iPod Touch, iPhone and iPad.

For further clarification or assistance, Australian Government IT Security Advisors can consult the Defence Signals Directorate by emailing
