| Review configuration settings to confirm the minimum passcode length is 6 or more. |
This procedure is performed in the iOS management tool and on the iOS device.
Note: If an organization has multiple configuration profiles, then the check procedure must be performed on the relevant configuration profiles applicable to the scope of the review.
In the Management tool, verify the "Minimum passcode length" value is set to 6 or greater.
Alternatively, verify the text "minLength 6" appears in the configuration profile (.mobileconfig file). It also is acceptable for the integer value to be greater than 6.
On the iOS device:
1. Open the Settings app.
2. Tap "General".
3. Tap "Profiles" or "Profiles & Device Management" or "Device Management".
4. Tap the Configuration Profile from the iOS management tool containing the password policy.
5. Tap "Restrictions".
6. Tap "Passcode".
7. Verify "Minimum length" is listed as "6" or greater.
If the "Minimum passcode length" is less than 6 characters in the iOS management tool, "minLength " has an integer value of less than 6, or the password policy on the iOS device from the iOS management tool does not list "Minimum length" of "6" or fewer, this is a finding.
