The application server must use an enterprise user management system to uniquely identify and authenticate users (or processes acting on behalf of organizational users).
To assure accountability and prevent unauthorized access, application server users must be uniquely identified and authenticated. This is typically accomplished via the use of a user store which is either local (OS-based) or centralized (LDAP) in nature. To ensure support to the enterprise, the authentication must utilize an enterprise solution.
Configure the application server to use an enterprise user management system to uniquely identify and authenticate users and processes acting on behalf of organizational users.
Review application server documentation and configuration settings to determine if the application server is using an enterprise solution to authenticate organizational users and processes running on the users' behalf. If an enterprise solution is not being used, this is a finding.
