DoD STIGs – V-32406

Overview:

Title: The application must support the employment of automated mechanisms supporting the auditing of the enforcement actions.

Vulnerability ID: V-32406

STIG ID:

IA Controls: None

Severity: medium

Description: Any changes to the hardware, software, and/or firmware components of the information system and/or application can potentially have significant effects on the overall security of the system.

Accordingly, only qualified and authorized individuals are allowed to obtain access to information system components for purposes of initiating changes, including upgrades and modifications.

Access restrictions for change also include software libraries.

Examples of access restrictions include: physical and logical access controls, workflow automation, media libraries, abstract layers (e.g., changes are implemented into a third-party interface rather than directly into the information system component), and change windows (e.g., changes occur only during specified times, making unauthorized changes outside the window easy to discover).

Check Text: Check DBMS settings to verify organizationally required automated mechanisms are in place for supporting the auditing of enforcement actions. If the database does not have automated mechanisms in place for supporting the auditing of enforcement actions, this is a finding.

Fix Text: Configure DBMS settings to ensure automated mechanisms are in place for supporting the auditing of enforcement actions.
