Fix Recommendation

This antivirus action must be configured to connect to organizationally approved scanning software that will generate an alert to the DataPower Gateway when new active propagation of malware infecting DoD systems or malicious code adversely affecting the operations and/or security of DoD systems is detected by taking the following steps:

From the WebGUI, expand the Services folder, expand the folder of the type of service used (such as MultiProtocol Gateway), and click on the Processing Policy menu item. In the Policy, add an AntiVirus action. This antivirus action must be configured to connect to organizationally approved scanning software that will generate an alert to the DataPower Gateway when new active propagation of malware infecting DoD systems or malicious code adversely affecting the operations and/or security of DoD systems is detected.

In the DataPower WebGUI, navigate to Administration >> Access >> SNMP Settings. Configure the "Trap Event Subscriptions" tab to include Event Subscriptions that are judged to be associated with the detection of root level intrusion events which provide unauthorized privileged access. Configure the "Trap and Notification Targets" tab to include an approved SNMP server that generates alerts that will be forwarded, at a minimum, to the ISSO and ISSM.

Check Contents

From the WebGUI, expand the Services folder, expand the folder of the type of service used (such as MultiProtocol Gateway), and click on the Processing Policy menu item. In the Policy, double-click the AntiVirus action. This antivirus action must be configured to connect to organizationally approved scanning software that will generate an alert to the DataPower Gateway when new active propagation of malware infecting DoD systems or malicious code adversely affecting the operations and/or security of DoD systems is detected.

Verify that the DataPower Gateway is configured to, upon receipt of an alert from the scanning software, generate notification messages to an authorized SNMP server that will, at a minimum, send an alert to the ISSO and ISSM by using the following steps:

In the DataPower WebGUI, navigate to Administration >> Access >> SNMP Settings. On the "Trap Event Subscriptions" tab, verify the inclusion of Event Subscriptions that indicate virus detection. On the "Trap and Notification Targets" tab, verify that an approved SNMP server is configured as a Log Target.

If no SNMP server is configured as a Log Target, this is a finding.
