Cornerstone Learn - Mobile Security Enhancements

This enhancement includes the following features, which help improve the security of the Cornerstone Learn app and protect against potential attacks:

  • Weak PIN detection, with a pop-up that prompts users to use a stronger PIN. Criteria that will flag a PIN as weak:
    • Less than three unique characters (e.g. PIN that uses only two numbers, such as 343344)
    • Using four numbers that are in subsequent order (e.g 1234XX or X1234X or XX4567)
    • Using four numbers in backwards subsequent order (e.g. XX4321 or 4321XX)
  • 30 minute device lockout after five unsuccessful PIN attempts
  • Encryption of information before storing to keychain (iOS only)

This enhancement was made available with the Dec 4 2020 patch.
