DoD STIGs – V-32190


Title: The application must monitor for unauthorized connections of mobile devices to organizational information systems.

Vulnerability ID: V-32190


IA Controls: None

Severity: medium

Description: Mobile devices include portable storage media (e.g., USB memory sticks, external hard disk drives) and portable computing and communications devices with information storage capability (e.g., notebook/laptop computers, personal digital assistants, cellular telephones, digital cameras, and audio recording devices).

Organization-controlled mobile devices include those devices for which the organization has the authority to specify and the ability to enforce specific security requirements.

Usage restrictions and implementation guidance related to mobile devices include configuration management, device identification and authentication, implementation of mandatory protective software (e.g., malicious code detection, firewall), scanning devices for malicious code, updating virus protection software, scanning for critical software updates and patches, conducting primary operating system (and possibly other resident software) integrity checks, and disabling unnecessary hardware (e.g., wireless, infrared).

In order to detect unauthorized mobile device connections, organizations must first identify and document what mobile devices are authorized.

Monitoring for unauthorized connections is usually handled by configuration management software, log alarming, IDS, or some other security mechanism specifically designed to automate and address this requirement.

This requirement is NA for applications not designed to monitor for unauthorized connections to information systems. Applications designed to meet this requirement must be able to do so according to organizational usage restrictions and policy.
