DoD STIGs – V-32531


Title: The application must disable network access by unauthorized components/devices or notify designated organizational officials.

Vulnerability ID: V-32531


IA Controls: None

Severity: medium

Description: Maintaining system and network integrity requires all systems on the network are identified and accounted for. Without an accurate accounting of systems utilizing the network, the opportunity exists for the introduction of rogue systems. The significance of this manner of security compromise increases exponentially over time and could become a persistent threat. Therefore, organizations must employ automated mechanisms to detect the addition unauthorized devices.

Information deemed to be necessary by the organization to achieve effective property accountability can include, for example, hardware inventory specifications (manufacturer, type, model, serial number, physical location), software license information, information system/component owner, and for a networked component/device, the machine name and network address.

The monitoring for unauthorized components/devices on information system networks may be accomplished on an ongoing basis or by the periodic scanning of organizational networks for that purpose. Automated mechanisms can be implemented within the information system and/or in another separate information system or device.

Applications that are designed as systems configuration management solutions or other solutions developed specifically to fill the role of identifying or managing systems in the enterprise must be able to either disable the identified device or notify the appropriate personnel when new systems have been introduced into the environment.

This requirement is specific to configuration management applications. This requirement is NA for databases.
