This paper re-examines the Samsung Knox enterprise-grade security solution that comes pre-loaded on most Samsung devices. Samsung has built Knox from the ground up and encompasses both hardware and software encryption and security policies. Knox DualDAR adds two separate layers of encryption, further meeting the requirements of classified deployments. Knox DualDAR secures all Workspace data on devices with two distinct levels of encryption. Data encryption at the outer layer is AES 256 XTS and file encryption keys are encrypted using AES-GCM 256.
