Title: The application must bind security attributes to information to facilitate information flow policy enforcement.
Vulnerability ID: V-32222
IA Controls: None
Description: The application enforces approved authorizations for controlling the flow of information within the system and between interconnected systems in accordance with applicable policy. Information flow control regulates where information is allowed to travel within an information system and between information systems (as opposed to who is allowed to access the information) and without explicit regard to subsequent accesses to that information.
Attribution is a critical component of a security concept of operations. The ability to identify source and destination points for information flowing in an information system, allows forensic reconstruction of events when required, and increases policy compliance by attributing policy violations to specific organizations/individuals. Binding security attributes to information allows policy enforcement mechanisms to act on that information and enforce policy.
This requirement applies only to network devices specifically for handling flow control. This requirement is NA for databases.
