DoD STIGs – V-32181

Overview:

Title: The DBMS must display security labels using organization identified human-readable, standard naming conventions.

Vulnerability ID: V-32181

STIG ID:

IA Controls: None

Severity: medium

Description: Security attributes are abstractions representing the basic properties or characteristics of an entity (e.g., subjects and objects) with respect to safeguarding information.

These attributes are typically associated with internal data structures (e.g., records, buffers, files, registry keys) within the information system and are used to enable the implementation of access control and flow control policies, reflect special dissemination, handling or distribution instructions, or support other aspects of the information security policy.

Examples of application security attributes are classified, FOUO, sensitive, etc.

Security attributes need to be displayed in human-readable form in order to determine how the data should be disseminated, handled and what distribution instructions apply to the data. When applications generate or output data, the associated security attributes need to be displayed.

Objects output from the information system include pages, screens, or equivalent.

Output devices include printers and video displays on computer terminals, monitors, screens on notebook/laptop computers, and personal digital assistants.

Check Text: Review system documentation to determine if the labeling of sensitive data is required under organization defined guidelines. If the labeling of sensitive data is not required, this is NA.

Review DBMS settings to determine whether the DBMS displays security labels in a human-readable form on each object output from the system to system output devices.

If DBMS does not display security labels using organization identified human-readable, standard naming conventions, this is a finding.

Fix Text: Configure DBMS to display security labels using organization identified human-readable, standard naming conventions.
