Fix Recommendation

Access the proxy server through which inbound web traffic is passed and configure settings to pass web traffic to the IIS 8.5 web server transparently.

Check Contents

Interview the System Administrator to review the configuration of the IIS 8.5 architecture and determine if inbound web traffic is passed through a proxy.

If the IIS 8.5 web server is receiving inbound web traffic through a proxy, the audit logs must be reviewed to determine if correct source information is being passed through by the proxy server.

Follow this procedure for web server and each website:

Open the IIS 8.5 Manager.

Click the IIS 8.5 web server name.

Click the "Logging" icon.

Click on "View log files" under the "Actions" pane.

When the log file is displayed, review source IP information in log entries and verify the entries do not reflect the IP address of the proxy server.

If the website is not behind a load balancer or proxy server, this is Not Applicable.

If the log entries in the log file(s) reflect the IP address of the proxy server as the source, this is a finding.

If provisions have been made to log the client IP via another field (i.e., utilizing X-Forwarded-For), this is not a finding.
