Findings (MAC III - Administrative Sensitive)

Finding ID Severity Title
V-234133 High The FortiGate firewall must use filters that use packet headers and packet attributes, including source and destination IP addresses and ports.
V-234151 High The FortiGate firewall must employ filters that prevent or limit the effects of all types of commonly known denial-of-service (DoS) attacks, including flooding, packet sweeps, and unauthorized port scanning.
V-234143 High The FortiGate firewall must protect the traffic log from unauthorized deletion of local log files and log records.
V-234152 Medium The FortiGate firewall must apply ingress filters to traffic that is inbound to the network through any active external interface.
V-234154 Medium When employed as a premise firewall, FortiGate must block all outbound management traffic.
V-234155 Medium The FortiGate firewall must restrict traffic entering the VPN tunnels to the management network to only the authorized management packets based on destination address.
V-234156 Medium The FortiGate firewall must be configured to inspect all inbound and outbound traffic at the application layer.
V-234157 Medium The FortiGate firewall must be configured to restrict it from accepting outbound packets that contain an illegitimate address in the source address field via an egress filter or by enabling Unicast Reverse Path Forwarding (uRPF).
V-234150 Medium If communication with the central audit server is lost, the FortiGate firewall must generate a real-time alert to, at a minimum, the SCA and ISSO.
V-234139 Medium The FortiGate firewall must generate traffic log entries containing information to establish the outcome of the events, such as, at a minimum, the success or failure of the application of the firewall rule.
V-234136 Medium The FortiGate firewall must generate traffic log entries containing information to establish when (date and time) the events occurred.
V-234137 Medium The FortiGate firewall must generate traffic log entries containing information to establish the network location where the events occurred.
V-234134 Medium The FortiGate firewall must use organization-defined filtering rules that apply to the monitoring of remote access traffic for the traffic from the VPN access points.
V-234135 Medium The FortiGate firewall must generate traffic log entries containing information to establish what type of events occurred.
V-234159 Medium The FortiGate firewall must allow authorized users to record a packet-capture-based IP, traffic type (TCP, UDP, or ICMP), or protocol.
V-234161 Medium The FortiGate firewall must generate traffic log records when attempts are made to send packets between security zones that are not authorized to communicate.
V-234160 Medium The FortiGate firewall must generate traffic log records when traffic is denied, restricted, or discarded.
V-234147 Medium The FortiGate firewall must filter traffic destined to the internal enclave in accordance with the specific traffic that is approved and registered in the Ports, Protocols, and Services Management (PPSM) Category Assurance List (CAL), Vulnerability Assessments (VAs) for that the enclave.
V-234146 Medium The FortiGate firewall implementation must manage excess bandwidth to limit the effects of packet flooding types of denial-of-service (DoS) attacks.
V-234145 Medium The FortiGate firewall must block outbound traffic containing denial-of-service (DoS) attacks to protect against the use of internal information systems to launch any DoS attacks against other networks or endpoints.
V-234144 Medium The FortiGate firewall must disable or remove unnecessary network services and functions that are not used as part of its role in the architecture.
V-234142 Medium The FortiGate firewall must protect the traffic log from unauthorized modification of local log records.
V-234141 Medium The FortiGate firewall must protect traffic log records from unauthorized access while in transit to the central audit server.
V-234140 Medium In the event that communication with the central audit server is lost, the FortiGate firewall must continue to queue traffic log records locally.
V-234153 Medium The FortiGate firewall must apply egress filters to traffic outbound from the network through any internal interface.
V-234149 Medium The FortiGate firewall must send traffic log entries to a central audit server for management and configuration of the traffic log entries.
V-234148 Medium The FortiGate firewall must fail to a secure state if the firewall filtering functions fail unexpectedly.
V-234138 Low The FortiGate firewall must generate traffic log entries containing information to establish the source of the events, such as the source IP address at a minimum.
V-234158 Low The FortiGate firewall must generate an alert that can be forwarded to, at a minimum, the Information System Security Officer (ISSO) and Information System Security Manager (ISSM) when denial-of-service (DoS) incidents are detected.
