Knox is Samsung Corporate security software that can create a very secure environment on your tablet to use it for work. Once you flash custom software (ie. rooting) the tablet will disable that feature permanently.

Yes. Once you root, the Knox flag is tripped (from 0x0 to 0x1). That tablet will never be able to install Knox afterwards, since Samsung cannot guarantee the tablet is secure.
