1. Make a list of all iOS security policies listed on the MDM server that have been assigned to iOS devices and review each policy.
2. Select each security policy iOS devices are assigned to, and in turn, verify the required settings are in the policy. Verify "Minimum length of" is set to 4 or more in the iOS security policy.

Note: A minimum passcode length of 4 is only acceptable when either no sensitive DoD data is stored on the device or the device has a security container that requires a distinct complex password.

Mark as a finding if the required rule is not set up on the MDM server.

Note: If there is a finding, note the name of the policy in the Findings Details section in VMS/Component Provided Tracking Database.
