The mobile operating system must protect the integrity of the provisioning data downloaded to the handheld device during a trusted over-the-air (OTA) provisioning session.

Provisioning data may be sensitive and therefore must be adequately protected. It may be possible for an adversary within the general proximity of the mobile device to hijack provisioning sessions and modify data transmitted during the provisioning process. Proper use of cryptography provides strong assurance that provisioning data is protected against integrity attacks.

Check Text ( C-41065r1_chk )
Review system documentation and operating system configuration to determine if there are appropriate integrity mechanisms protecting the confidentiality of OTA provisioning. Appropriate integrity mechanisms generally involve the use of FIPS validated cryptographic modules implementing algorithms that provide integrity services. If there are no such mechanisms present, this is a finding.
Fix Text (F-36600r1_fix)
Configure the operating system to use cryptography providing integrity for provisioning downloads.
