Advanced mobile security for Android

The Knox mobile security solution protects applications and data by strictly defining what each process is allowed to do and what data it can access. This allows Knox security to separate, encrypt, and protect enterprise data within a managed container.

Real-time kernel protection integrity measurement architecture

Periodic Kernel Measurement & Real-time Kernel Protection work to constantly inspect the core software of the OS, the kernel. These checks ensure that requests to bypass device security are blocked and sensitive data is protected.

TrustZone

The Knox enterprise security solution leverages a processor architecture known as TrustZone, in which highly sensitive computations are isolated from the rest of the device’s operations, protecting enterprise data.

Secure / trusted boot and hardware root of trust

To prevent security measures from being bypassed or compromised, Knox uses Boot-time Protections backed by Hardware Root of Trust to verify integrity of the device during the boot process.

Knox security philosophy

Knox security philosophy

Chipset

The Knox platform ensures only approved versions of system-critical software are loaded. As the platform is built-in, the trust starts in the hardware, with unique certificates burnt into the chipset of each device.

Knox warranty fuse

With these unique certificates, the Knox mobile security platform can verify each piece of software that loads. If verification fails, Knox either records the tampering by flipping a one-time fuse called the Knox Warranty Bit, or prevents further booting. Devices with compromised Knox Warranty Bits cannot use certain Knox features or services, such as Knox Workspace or Samsung Pay.

Rollback prevention

Rollback prevention ensures that a Samsung device is not downgraded to an earlier, vulnerable software version.

Mobile security software

Without Knox security loaded, verified software can still be modified by the user, either intentionally or unintentionally. For example, by downloading a malicious app or malware.

Device monitoring

The Knox advanced mobile security platform ensures that system-critical software is not modified once loaded. The enterprise mobile security platform uses a set of technologies to protect the device kernel - the core of the operating system. It also protects applications and their data during runtime to detect malicious attacks as well as monitoring policy settings to quickly isolate any threat.

Rooting prevention

The Samsung Knox mobile enterprise solution is designed to protect the kernel and prevent rooting. This keeps the system processes and resources protected from hostile access and malware attacks.

Device attestation

For IT admins intending to manage mobile devices with an EMM (Enterprise Mobility Management) solution, Knox-enabled devices can provide you with an attestation, which lets you see if a device has been tampered with or not. Based on that, you can decide if the device can be trusted, and if it is allowed to receive sensitive corporate data.

Software approval

The Knox enterprise mobile security platform only loads and runs approved system-critical software on a device and can prove this to a third-party when requested.

EMM (Enterprise Mobility Management) integration

The final step of the design philosophy is to make the trusted platform ready for enterprise use. This involves giving enterprises complete control and configurability over their data and applications using an EMM solution.

Security controls and utilities

Knox supplies a collection of controls and utilities. Encryption keeps data secure and confidential. VPN allows data to be easily and securely sent and received when working out of office. SSO allows data to be easily accessed with consolidated authentication for apps and data.
