Title: The application must prevent the execution of prohibited mobile code.
Vulnerability ID: V-32386
IA Controls: None
Description: Decisions regarding the utilization of mobile code within organizational information systems needs to include evaluations which help determine the potential for the code to cause damage to the system if used maliciously.
Applications can prevent the execution of prohibited mobile code by leveraging architectures that provide a virtual execution environment sometimes referred to as a “sandbox”. The mobile code is executed within this isolated environment apart from the Host’s indigenous operating environment which allows for mobile code capability restrictions and helps to prevent malicious code from accessing system resources and data.
Policy and procedures related to mobile code address preventing the introduction of unacceptable mobile code within the information system. The DoDI 8552.01 policy pertains to the use of mobile code technologies within DoD information systems.
