| V-237825 ||High ||The storage system must only be operated in conjunction with an LDAP server in a trusted environment if an Active Directory server is not available. ||Where strong account and password management capabilities are required, the 3PAR system is heavily dependent on its ability to use an LDAP server.

| V-237824 ||High ||The storage system must be configured to have only 1 emergency account which can be accessed without LDAP, and which has full administrator capabilities. ||While LDAP allows the storage system to support stronger authentication and provides additional auditing, it also places a dependency on an external entity in the operational environment. The... |
| V-237827 ||High ||The storage system must only be operated in conjunction with an Active Directory server in a trusted environment if an LDAP server is not available. ||Where strong account and password management capabilities are required, the 3PAR system is heavily dependent on its ability to use an AD server.

| V-237826 ||High ||User credentials which would allow remote access to the system by the Service Processor must be removed from the storage system. ||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... |
| V-237818 ||High ||DoD-approved encryption must be implemented to protect the confidentiality and integrity of remote access sessions, information during preparation for transmission, information during reception, and information during transmission in addition to enforcing replay-resistant authentication mechanisms for network access to privileged accounts. ||Without protection of the transmitted information, confidentiality and integrity may be compromised because unprotected communications can be intercepted and either read or altered.... |
| V-237817 ||High ||The CIM service must use DoD-approved encryption. ||Without protection of the transmitted information, confidentiality and integrity may be compromised because unprotected communications can be intercepted and either read or altered.
| V-237813 ||High ||The storage system in a hardened configuration must be configured to disable the Remote Copy feature, unless needed. ||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... |
| V-237822 ||Medium ||The SNMP service on the storage system must require the use of a FIPS 140-2 approved cryptographic hash algorithm as part of its authentication and integrity methods. ||The SNMP service must use AES or a FIPS 140-2 approved successor algorithm for protecting the privacy of communications. |
| V-237814 ||Medium ||The CIM service must be disabled, unless needed. ||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... |
| V-237815 ||Medium ||The storage system must terminate all network connections associated with a communications session at the end of the session, at shutdown, or after 10 minutes of inactivity. ||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... |
| V-237828 ||Medium ||The storage system must require passwords contain a minimum of 15 characters, after an administrator has set the minimum password length to that value. ||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... |
| V-237812 ||Medium ||The storage system must be operated at the latest maintenance update available from the vendor. ||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... |
| V-237821 ||Medium ||The SNMP service on the storage system must use only SNMPv3 or its successors. ||SNMP Versions 1 and 2 are not considered secure. Without the strong authentication and privacy provided by the SNMP Version 3 User-based Security Model (USM), an attacker or other unauthorized... |
| V-237830 ||Medium ||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... |
| V-237820 ||Medium ||SNMP must be changed from default settings and must be configured on the storage system to provide alerts of critical events that impact system security. ||Whether active or not, default SNMP passwords, users, and passphrases must be changed to maintain security. If the service is running with the default authenticators, anyone can gather data about... |
| V-237819 ||Low ||The storage system must implement cryptographic mechanisms to prevent unauthorized modification or disclosure of all information at rest on all storage system components. ||Operating systems handling data requiring “data at rest” protections must employ cryptographic mechanisms to prevent unauthorized disclosure and modification of the information at rest.
| V-237823 ||Low ||The storage system must, for networked systems, compare internal information system clocks at least every 24 hours with a server which is synchronized to one of the redundant United States Naval Observatory (USNO) time servers, or a time server designated for the appropriate DoD network (NIPRNet/SIPRNet), and/or the Global Positioning System (GPS). ||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... |
| V-237829 ||Low ||The Standard Mandatory DoD Notice and Consent Banner must be displayed until users acknowledge the usage conditions and take explicit actions to log on for further access. ||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... |
| V-237831 ||Low ||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... |
