Discussion

Application servers provide a myriad of differing processes, features and functionalities. Some of these processes may be deemed to be unnecessary or too unsecure to run on a production DoD system. Application servers must provide the capability to disable or deactivate functionality and services that are deemed to be non-essential to the server mission or can adversely impact server performance, for example, disabling dynamic JSP reloading on production application servers as a best practice.

Fix Text

Configure the application server to use only essential features and capabilities.

Check Content

Review the application server documentation and configuration to determine if the application server can disable non-essential features and capabilities. If the application server is not configured to meet this requirement, this is a finding.
