I wonder if anyone here has seen this Security Configuration
Recommendations for Apple iOS 5 Devices, by the U.S. National Security
Agency and dated March 2012. I didn't find any reference to it in the
list archives. A Tweep, M.A. Ho-Kane, just tweeted it. The document is
not classified and reads that it is designed to help U.S. government
officials across agencies handle Sensitive But Unclassified information
on their iPhones. The document seems legitimate to me. And makes sense
since so many people including U.S. agency officials these days carry
iPhones or iPads. The document and its recommendations also seems very

I would welcome any thoughts at all including whether people think the
recommendations are sound. Thanks! Frank
