| Interview the System Administrator and Web Manager. |
Ask for documentation for the IIS 8.5 web server administration.
Verify there are documented procedures for shutting down an IIS 8.5 website in the event of an attack. The procedure should, at a minimum, provide the following steps:
Determine the respective website for the application at risk of an attack.
Access the IIS 8.5 web server IIS Manager.
Select the respective website.
In the "Actions" pane, under "Manage Website", click on "Stop".
If necessary, stop all websites.
If necessary, stop the IIS 8.5 web server by selecting the web server in the IIS Manager.
In the "Actions" pane, under "Manage Server", click on "Stop".
If the web server is not capable of or cannot be configured to disconnect or disable remote access to the hosted applications when necessary, this is a finding.
