Secure Web 20.8.0

Secure Web for Android

Dual mode (preview) for Android release of Secure Web. A mobile application management (MAM) SDK is available to replace areas of MDX functionality that aren’t covered by iOS and Android platforms. The MDX wrapping technology is scheduled to reach end of life (EOL) in September 2021. To continue managing your enterprise applications, you must incorporate the MAM SDK.

From version 20.8.0, Android apps are released with the MDX and MAM SDK to prepare for the MDX EOL strategy mentioned earlier. The MDX dual mode is intended to provide a way to transition to new MAM SDKs from the legacy MDX Toolkit. Using the dual mode feature allows you to either continue managing apps using MDX Toolkit (now Legacy MDX) or switch to the new MAM SDK for app management.

Once you switch to the MAM SDK for app management, Citrix implements further changes and it does not require any action from the administrators.

For more details about the MAM SDK (Preview), see the following articles:

Prerequisites

For a successful deployment of the dual mode feature, ensure the following:

  • Update your Citrix Endpoint Management to versions 10.12 RP2 and later, or 10.11 RP5 and later.
  • Update your mobile apps to version 20.8.0 or later.
  • Update the policies file to version 20.8.0 or later.
  • If your organization uses third-party apps, make sure to incorporate the MAM SDK into your third-party apps before you switch to the MAM SDK option for your Citrix mobile productivity apps. All of your managed apps must be moved to the MAM SDK at one time.

Note:

MAM SDK is supported for all cloud-based customers.

Limitations

  • MAM SDK is only supported for apps published under the Android Enterprise platform on your Citrix Endpoint Management deployment. For the newly published apps, the default encryption is platform-based encryption.
  • MAM SDK only supports platform-based encryption, and not MDX encryption.
  • If you don’t update Citrix Endpoint Management, and the policy files are running on version 20.8.0 and later for the mobile apps, then duplicate entries of the Networking policy are created for Secure Web.

When you configure Secure Web in Citrix Endpoint Management, the dual mode feature allows you to either continue managing apps using the MDX Toolkit (now Legacy MDX) or switch to the new MAM SDK for app management. Citrix recommends that you switch to MAM SDK, as MAM SDKs are more modular and are intended to allow you to use only a subset of the MDX functionality that your organization uses. It reduces the overall in-binary and runtime footprint of an app.

You get the following options for policy settings in the MDX or MAM SDK policy container:

  • MAM SDK
  • Legacy MDX

MAM SDK

In the MDX or MAM SDK policy container policy, you can only change your option from Legacy MDX to MAM SDK. The option to switch from MAM SDK to Legacy MDX is not allowed, and you need to republish the app. The default value is MDX Legacy. Ensure that you set the same policy mode for both Secure Mail and Secure Web running on the same device. You cannot have two different modes running on the same device.

Secure Web 19.10.0

Secure Web iOS and Android support encryption management. Encryption management allows you to use modern device platform security while also ensuring the device remains in a sufficient state to use platform security effectively. By using encryption management, you eliminate local data encryption redundancy since file system encryption is provided by the respective iOS or Android platform. To enable this feature, an admin must configure the Encryption type MDX policy to Platform encryption with compliance enforcement in the Citrix Endpoint Management console.

Encryption management allows you to use modern device platform security while also ensuring the device remains in a sufficient state to use platform security effectively. By using encryption management, you eliminate local data encryption redundancy since file system encryption is provided by the iOS or Android platform. To enable this feature, an admin must configure the Encryption type MDX policy to Platform encryption with compliance enforcement in the Citrix Endpoint Management console.

Encryption type

To use the encryption management feature, in the Citrix Endpoint Management console, set the Encryption type policy to Platform encryption with compliance enforcement. This enables encryption management and all the existing encrypted application data on users’ devices seamlessly transition to a state that is encrypted by the device and not by MDX. During this transition, the app is paused for a one-time data migration. Upon successful migration, responsibility for encryption of locally stored data is transferred from MDX to the device platform. MDX continues to check compliance of the device upon each app launch. This feature works in both MDM + MAM and MAM-only environments.

When you set the Encryption type policy to Platform encryption with compliance enforcement, the new policy supersedes your existing MDX Encryption.

For details about the encryption management MDX policies for Secure Web, see the Encryption section in:

Non-compliant device behavior

When a device falls below the minimum compliance requirements, the Non-compliant device behavior policy allows you to select what action is taken:

  • Allow app – Allow the app to run normally.
  • Allow app after warning – Warn the user that an app does not meet the minimum compliance requirements and allows the app to run. This is the default value.
  • Block app – Block the app from running.

The following criteria determine whether a device meets the minimum compliance requirements.

Devices running iOS:

  • iOS 10: An app is running operation system version that is greater than or equal to the specified version.
  • Debugger access: An app does not have debugging enabled.
  • Jailbroken device: An app is not running on a jailbroken device.
  • Device passcode: Device passcode is ON.
  • Data sharing: Data sharing is not enabled for the app.

Devices running Android:

  • Android SDK 24 (Android 7 Nougat): An app is running an operation system version that is greater than or equal to the specified version.
  • Debugger Access: An app does not have debugging enabled.
  • Rooted devices: An app is not running on a rooted device.
  • Device lock: Device passcode is ON.
  • Device encrypted: An app is running on an encrypted device.
