Discussion

The organization must install security-relevant updates (e.g., patches, maintenance updates, and version updates). Due to the potential need for isolation of the storage system from automatic update mechanisms, the organization must give careful consideration to the methodology used to carry out updates.

Fix Text

The software update process must be performed by the vendor's support organization. Contact the vendor's support organization to determine if an update is available. Note: it is possible no update is currently available for the specific product model being evaluated. This is not an error. If an update is available, the support organization will use this process to install the software. Acquire the system update image on DVD media from the vendor's support organization. Power on the Service Processor, and apply its software update first. Perform an Attach operation between the Service Processor and the disk array. Then apply the software update to the 3PAR system. Perform a Detach operation between the Service Processor and the disk array, and power off the Service Processor.

Check Content

Determine when the last update occurred, by entering the following command: cli% showpatch -hist The output fields are InstallTime Id Package Version Examine the InstallTime of the last entry in the output. If the last update occurred more than 3 months ago, verify on the vendor's website what the latest version is. If the current installation is not at the latest release, this is a finding.

It is detrimental for operating systems to provide, or install by default, functionality exceeding requirements or mission objectives. These unnecessary capabilities or services are often overlooked and therefore may remain unsecured. They increase the risk to the platform by providing additional attack vectors. Operating systems 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 (e.g., key missions, functions). Examples of non-essential capabilities include but are not limited to games, software packages, tools, and demonstration software not related to requirements or providing a wide array of functionality not required for every mission, but which cannot be disabled.

Discussion

Terminating an idle session within a short time period reduces the window of opportunity for unauthorized personnel to take control of a management session enabled on the console or console port that has been left unattended. In addition, quickly terminating an idle session will also free up resources committed by the managed network element. Terminating network connections associated with communication sessions includes, for example, de-allocating associated TCP/IP address/port pairs at the operating system level, and de-allocating networking assignments at the application level if multiple application sessions are using a single operating system-level network connection. This does not mean that the operating system terminates all sessions or network access; it only ends the inactive session and releases the resources associated with that session.

Discussion

Without protection of the transmitted information, confidentiality and integrity may be compromised because unprotected communications can be intercepted and either read or altered. Cryptographic mechanisms used for protecting the integrity of information include, for example, signed hash functions using asymmetric cryptography enabling distribution of the public key to verify the hash information while maintaining the confidentiality of the secret key used to generate the hash. Facilitating the confidentiality of transmitted information requires the operating system to take measures in preparing information for transmission. This can be accomplished via access control and encryption. This requirement applies to both internal and external networks and all types of information system components from which information can be transmitted (e.g., servers, mobile devices, notebook computers, printers, copiers, scanners, and facsimile machines). Communication paths outside the physical protection of a controlled boundary are exposed to the possibility of interception and modification. Unapproved mechanisms that are used for authentication to the cryptographic module are not verified and therefore cannot be relied upon to provide confidentiality or integrity, and DoD data may be compromised. Operating systems using encryption are required to use FIPS-compliant mechanisms for authenticating to cryptographic modules. FIPS 140-2 is the current standard for validating that mechanisms used to access cryptographic modules utilize authentication that meets DoD requirements. This allows for Security Levels 1, 2, 3, or 4 for use on a general purpose computing system.

Discussion

Operating systems handling data requiring “data at rest” protections must employ cryptographic mechanisms to prevent unauthorized disclosure and modification of the information at rest. Selection of a cryptographic mechanism is based on the need to protect the integrity of organizational information. The strength of the mechanism is commensurate with the security category and/or classification of the information. Organizations have the flexibility to either encrypt all information on storage devices (i.e., full disk encryption) or encrypt specific data structures (e.g., files, records, or fields). Satisfies: SRG-OS-000404-GPOS-00183, SRG-OS-000405-GPOS-00184

Fix Text

Contact an authorized installer to enable the data-at-rest encryption feature. The data at rest encryption feature has hardware and licensing pre-requisites which must be verified by an authorized installer prior to enabling the feature.

Check Content

Review the requirements by the Information Owner to discover whether the system stores sensitive or classified information. If the system does not store sensitive or classified information, this is not applicable. Verify that data at rest encryption is enabled by entering the following command: cli% controlencryption status Licensed | Enabled | BackupSaved | State | SeqNum | Keystore yes | Yes | no | normal | 0 | --- If the "Enabled" flag is not set to "Yes" as shown in the output above, this is a finding.

Inaccurate time stamps make it more difficult to correlate events and can lead to an inaccurate analysis. Determining the correct time a particular event occurred on a system is critical when conducting forensic analysis and investigating system events. Sources outside the configured acceptable allowance (drift) may be inaccurate. Synchronizing internal information system clocks provides uniformity of time stamps for information systems with multiple system clocks and systems connected over a network. Organizations should consider endpoints that may not have regular access to the authoritative time server (e.g., mobile, teleworking, and tactical endpoints).

Failure to remove the default user accounts associated with remote access from the Service Processor increases the risk of unauthorized access to the 3PAR OS via the product's remote support interface. The Service Processor's authentication methods have not been evaluated and using such mechanisms to permit remote, full control of the system by organizational or non-organizational users represents an increased risk to unauthorized access. The Service Processor can also send system data offsite providing access to system information to non-DoD organizations.

The shorter the password, the lower the number of possible combinations that need to be tested before the password is compromised. Password complexity, or strength, is a measure of the effectiveness of a password in resisting attempts at guessing and brute-force attacks. Password length is one factor of several that helps to determine strength and how long it takes to crack a password. Use of more characters in a password helps to exponentially increase the time and/or resources required to compromise the password.

Display of a standardized and approved use notification before granting access to the operating system ensures privacy and security notification verbiage used is consistent with applicable federal laws, Executive Orders, directives, policies, regulations, standards, and guidance. The banner must be acknowledged by the user prior to allowing the user access to the operating system. This provides assurance that the user has seen the message and accepted the conditions for access. If the consent banner is not acknowledged by the user, DoD will not be in compliance with system use notifications required by law. To establish acceptance of the application usage policy, a click-through banner at system logon is required. The system must prevent further activity until the user executes a positive action to manifest agreement by clicking on a box indicating "OK". The banner must be formatted in accordance with applicable DoD policy. Use the following verbiage for operating systems that can accommodate banners of 1300 characters: "You are accessing a U.S. Government (USG) Information System (IS) that is provided for USG-authorized use only. By using this IS (which includes any device attached to this IS), you consent to the following conditions: -The USG routinely intercepts and monitors communications on this IS for purposes including, but not limited to, penetration testing, COMSEC monitoring, network operations and defense, personnel misconduct (PM), law enforcement (LE), and counterintelligence (CI) investigations. -At any time, the USG may inspect and seize data stored on this IS. -Communications using, or data stored on, this IS are not private, are subject to routine monitoring, interception, and search, and may be disclosed or used for any USG-authorized purpose. -This IS includes security measures (e.g., authentication and access controls) to protect USG interests--not for your personal benefit or privacy. -Notwithstanding the above, using this IS does not constitute consent to PM, LE or CI investigative searching or monitoring of the content of privileged communications, or work product, related to personal representation or services by attorneys, psychotherapists, or clergy, and their assistants. Such communications and work product are private and confidential. See User Agreement for details." Use the following verbiage for operating systems that have severe limitations on the number of characters that can be displayed in the banner: "I've read & consent to terms in IS user agreem't." Satisfies: SRG-OS-000023-GPOS-00006, SRG-OS-000024-GPOS-00007, SRG-OS-000228-GPOS-00088

Fix Text

To configure the SSH login banner, enter the command: cli% setsshbanner Enter the following text: I've read & consent to terms in IS user agreem't Then press enter twice to conclude setting the SSH banner text.

Check Content

Verify that the SSH login banner is properly configured. Enter the following command: cli% showsshbanner I've read & consent to terms in IS user agreem't If the output is not: "I've read & consent to terms in IS user agreem't" this is a finding. Alternatively: To inspect the banner, login via SSH from a remote host. If the output shown above is not displayed during SSH authentication, this is a finding.

The storage system must allocate audit record storage capacity to store at least one weeks worth of audit records, when audit records are not immediately sent to a central audit record storage facility.

To verify operating systems have a sufficient storage capacity in which to write the audit logs, operating systems need to be able to allocate audit record storage capacity. The task of allocating audit record storage capacity is usually performed during initial installation of the operating system.

Fix Text

Configure the audit logging capacity for the maximum storage value by entering the command: cli% setsys EventLogSize 4M

Check Content

Verify the logging capacity is set to the maximum value of "4", with the following command: cli% showsys -param If the resulting list of configured parameters and values, does not contain "EventLogSize : 4M", this is a finding.

The storage system must record time stamps for audit records that can be mapped to Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) or Greenwich Mean Time (GMT).

If time stamps are not consistently applied and there is no common time reference, it is difficult to perform forensic analysis. Time stamps generated by the operating system include date and time. Time is commonly expressed in UTC, a modern continuation of GMT, or local time with an offset from UTC.

Fix Text

Configure the "Timezone" field by first identifying the time zone identifier. Enter the command to list available time zone settings: cli% setdate -tzlist If UTC is to be set, then use the following command: cli% setdate -tz Etc/UTC

Check Content

Verify the "Timezone" field is configured by entering the following command: cli% showdate Node Date 0 2016-05-18 23:46:29 UTC (Etc/UTC) 1 2016-05-18 23:46:37 UTC (Etc/UTC) If the output does not match the required time zone, this is a finding.

Without protection of the transmitted information, confidentiality and integrity may be compromised because unprotected communications can be intercepted and either read or altered. Facilitating the confidentiality and integrity of transmitted information requires the operating system to take measures in preparing information for transmission. This can be accomplished via encryption. This requirement applies to both internal and external networks and all types of information system components from which information can be transmitted (e.g., servers, mobile devices, notebook computers, printers, copiers, scanners, and facsimile machines). Communication paths outside the physical protection of a controlled boundary are exposed to the possibility of interception and modification. Unapproved mechanisms that are used for authentication to the cryptographic module are not verified and therefore cannot be relied upon to provide confidentiality or integrity, and DoD data may be compromised.

Fix Text

Properly configure a Nokia 1830 encrypting switch to encrypt all data related to the Remote Copy feature or disable the Remote Copy feature with the following command: cli% stoprcopy

Check Content

Determine if the Remote Copy feature is running via the following command: cli% showrcopy Remote Copy is not configured on this system. If Remote Copy is not configured, this requirement is not applicable. If the Status is "Started" inspect the data path to and from the host for the proper use of a Nokia 1830 encrypting switch. If all data does not traverse this switch, this is a finding.

The CIM service must use DoD-approved encryption.

Disable unsecured CIM ports and enable secured CIM ports with the following command: cli% setcim -http disable -https enable Confirm the operation with "y"

Check Content

Determine if the CIM service is running with proper encryption via the following command: cli% showcim If the CIM service is "Disabled" and the CIM service "State" is "Inactive", this requirement is not applicable. If the output does not report the CIM HTTP value is "Disabled", this is a finding. If the output does not report the CIM HPPTSPort value is "5989", this is a finding.
