V-252166 Medium Database contents must be protected from unauthorized and unintended information transfer by enforcement of a data-transfer policy.
V-252143 Medium MongoDB and associated applications must reserve the use of dynamic code execution for situations that require it.
V-252142 Medium MongoDB must prevent unauthorized and unintended information transfer via shared system resources.
V-252141 Medium MongoDB must fail to a secure state if system initialization fails, shutdown fails, or aborts fail.
V-252140 Medium MongoDB must uniquely identify and authenticate non-organizational users (or processes acting on behalf of non-organizational users).
V-252147 Medium MongoDB must implement cryptographic mechanisms to prevent unauthorized modification of organization-defined information at rest (to include, at a minimum, PII and classified information) on organization-defined information system components.
V-252146 Medium MongoDB must use NIST FIPS 140-2-validated cryptographic modules for cryptographic operations.
V-252145 Medium MongoDB must enforce discretionary access control policies, as defined by the data owner, over defined subjects and objects.
V-252144 Medium MongoDB must associate organization-defined types of security labels having organization-defined security label values with information in storage and transmission.
V-252154 Medium Database objects (including but not limited to tables, indexes, storage, stored procedures, functions, triggers, links to software external to MongoDB, etc.) must be owned by database/DBMS principals authorized for ownership.
V-252149 Medium MongoDB must integrate with an organization-level authentication/access mechanism providing account management and automation for all users, groups, roles, and any other principals.
V-252148 Medium MongoDB must limit the total number of concurrent connections to the database.
V-252155 Medium The role(s)/group(s) used to modify database structure (including but not necessarily limited to tables, indexes, storage, etc.) and logic modules (stored procedures, functions, triggers, links to software external to MongoDB, etc.) must be restricted to authorized users.
V-252156 Medium Unused database components that are integrated in MongoDB and cannot be uninstalled must be disabled.
V-252185 Medium MongoDB must be configured in accordance with the security configuration settings based on DoD security configuration and implementation guidance, including STIGs, NSA configuration guides, CTOs, DTMs, and IAVMs.
V-252184 Medium MongoDB products must be a version supported by the vendor.
V-252183 Medium Security-relevant software updates to MongoDB must be installed within the time period directed by an authoritative source (e.g., IAVM, CTOs, DTMs, and STIGs).
V-252182 Medium When updates are applied to MongoDB software, any software components that have been replaced or made unnecessary must be removed.
V-252181 Medium When invalid inputs are received, MongoDB must behave in a predictable and documented manner that reflects organizational and system objectives.
V-252180 Medium MongoDB must maintain the confidentiality and integrity of information during reception.
V-252152 Medium MongoDB software installation account must be restricted to authorized users.
V-252157 Medium MongoDB must uniquely identify and authenticate organizational users (or processes acting on behalf of organizational users).
V-252158 Medium If passwords are used for authentication, MongoDB must implement LDAP or Kerberos for authentication to enforce the DoD standards for password complexity and lifetime.
V-252136 Medium MongoDB must protect its audit features from unauthorized access.
V-252137 Medium Unused database components that are integrated in MongoDB and cannot be uninstalled must be disabled.
V-252134 Medium MongoDB must provide audit record generation for DoD-defined auditable events within all DBMS/database components.
V-252135 Medium The audit information produced by MongoDB must be protected from unauthorized access.
V-252138 Medium Unused database components that are integrated in MongoDB and cannot be uninstalled must be disabled.
V-252139 Medium If passwords are used for authentication, MongoDB must transmit only encrypted representations of passwords.
V-252176 Medium MongoDB must require users to reauthenticate when organization-defined circumstances or situations require reauthentication.
V-252177 Medium MongoDB must prohibit the use of cached authenticators after an organization-defined time period.
