DoD STIGs – V-32533


Title: Applications must maintain the confidentiality of information during aggregation, packaging, and transformation in preparation for transmission. When transmitting data, applications need to leverage transmission protection mechanisms such as TLS, SSL VPN

Vulnerability ID: V-32533


IA Controls: None

Severity: medium

Description: Preventing the disclosure of transmitted information requires that applications take measures to employ some form of cryptographic mechanism in order to protect the information during transmission. This is usually achieved through the use of Transport Layer Security (TLS), SSL VPN, or IPSEC tunnel.

Alternative physical protection measures include protected distribution systems. Protective Distribution Systems (PDS) are used to transmit unencrypted classified NSI through an area of lesser classification or control. In as much as the classified NSI is unencrypted, the PDS must provide adequate electrical, electromagnetic and physical safeguards to deter exploitation. Refer to NSTSSI No. 7003 for additional details on a PDS.

This requirement is specific to network applications packaging and transmitting information through the network. This requirement is NA for databases.
