Discussion

In order to prevent unauthorized connection of devices, unauthorized transfer of information, or unauthorized tunneling (i.e., embedding of data types within data types), organizations must disable or restrict unused or unnecessary physical and logical ports/protocols on information systems. Applications are capable of providing a wide variety of functions and services. Some of the functions and services provided by default may not be necessary to support essential organizational operations. Additionally, it is sometimes convenient to provide multiple services from a single component (e.g., email and web services; however, doing so increases risk over limiting the services provided by any one component. To support the requirements and principles of least functionality, the application must support the organizational requirements providing only essential capabilities and limiting the use of ports, protocols, and/or services to only those required, authorized, and approved to conduct official business or to address authorized quality of life issues.

Fix Text

Configure the ArcGIS Server to ensure the application prohibits or restricts the use of PPSM CAL defined ports, protocols, and/or services. Substitute the target environment’s values for [bracketed] variables. Navigate to [https://server.domain.com/arcgis]admin/security/config (log on when prompted). Browse to Update. Update the Protocol parameter to "HTTPS Only". Click "Save"/"Apply".

Check Content

Review the ArcGIS Server configuration to ensure the application prohibits or restricts the use of PPSM CAL defined ports, protocols, and/or services. Substitute the target environment’s values for [bracketed] variables. Navigate to [https://server.domain.com/arcgis]admin/security/config (log on when prompted). Verify the "Protocol" parameter is not set to "HTTP Only". If the "Protocol" parameter is set to "HTTP Only", this is a finding.
