Fix Recommendation

Configure the application to use strong authentication (CAC) when accessing the application for maintenance purposes.

Check Contents

Review the application documentation and interview the application administrator to identify application maintenance functions.

If the application does not provide non-local maintenance and diagnostic capability, this requirement is not applicable.

Identify the maintenance functions/capabilities that are provided by the application, performed by an individual/admin and which can be performed remotely.

Examples include but are not limited to:

The application may provide the ability to clean up a folder of temporary files, add users, remove users, restart processes, backup certain files, manage logs, or execute diagnostic sessions.

Have the application admin authenticate to the application in an administrative role and verify that strong credentials (CAC) are required to access when performing application maintenance.

Have the application admin authenticate to the application host OS and verify that strong credentials (CAC) are required to access when performing application maintenance.

If the application administrator is prevented from accessing the OS by policy requirement or separation of duties requirements, this is not a finding.

If a CAC is not used when remotely accessing the application for maintenance or diagnostic sessions, this is a finding.
