For those who do not have a CAC with DoD Certificates, the Comment Matrix spreadsheet is located with the STIG at https://public.cyber.mil/stigs/downloads/.

If you are unable to find and download the content, please report broken link issues to the DoD Cyber Exchange Web team at dod.cyberexchange@mail.mil. For all questions related to the STIG content, please contact the DISA STIG Customer Support Desk at disa.stig_spt@mail.mil.

The Microsoft Office 2016 SCAP 1.3 benchmarks for Microsoft Access, Excel, Office System, OneDrive, OneNote, Outlook, PowerPoint, Project, Publisher, Skype, Visio, and Word are being withdrawn to be reevaluated.

Profile hives for domain users are not being processed correctly because of a technical implementation limitation that did not manifest during internal testing.

Please contact the DISA STIG Customer Support Desk at disa.stig_spt@mail.mil with any questions

DISA Posts Revised Files to Test New STIG Group and Rule IDs

DISA has posted the following additional content for testing new Security Technical Implementation Guide (STIG) and Security Requirements Guide (SRG) Group and Rule IDs:

  • Apple OS X 10.13 TEST STIG – Ver 2, Rel 0.1
  • Apple OS X 10.14 TEST STIG – Ver 2, Rel 0.1
  • BlackBerry Enterprise Mobility Server 2.x TEST STIG – Ver 2, Rel 0.1
  • Canonical Ubuntu 16.04 TEST STIG – Ver 2, Rel 0.1
  • Canonical Ubuntu 18.04 LTS TEST STIG – Ver 2, Rel 0.1
  • SLES 12 TEST STIG – Ver 2, Rel 0.1
  • Samsung Android OS 9 with Knox 3.x TEST STIG – Ver 2, Rel 0.1
  • Voice Video Endpoint TEST SRG – Ver 2, Rel 0.1
  • Voice Video Session Management TEST SRG – Ver 2, Rel 0.1

The following new and updated SCAP 1.2 content has also been posted:

  • Canonical Ubuntu 16.04 TEST STIG Benchmark – Ver 2, Rel 0.1
  • RHEL 7 TEST STIG Benchmark – Ver 3, Rel 0.5
  • SLES 12 TEST STIG Benchmark – Ver 2, Rel 0.1

As noted previously, to provide increased flexibility for the future, DISA is updating the systems that produce STIGs and SRGs. The initial modification will be to change Group and Rule IDs (Vul and Subvul IDs). The previous Group and Rule IDs will be retained through the update as “legacy” IDs, presented as XCCDF ident elements. See the example below:

<Group id="V-204392">
  <title>SRG-OS-000257-GPOS-00098</title>
  <description>…</description>
  <Rule id="SV-204392r85825_rule" weight="10.0" severity="high">
    <version>RHEL-07-010010</version>
    <title>The Red Hat Enterprise Linux operating system must be configured so that the file permissions, ownership, and group membership of system files and commands match the vendor values.</title>
    <description>…</description>
    <reference>…</reference>
    <ident system="http://cyber.mil/legacy">SV-86473</ident>
    <ident system="http://cyber.mil/legacy">V-71849</ident>
    <ident system="http://cyber.mil/cci">CCI-001494</ident>
    <ident system="http://cyber.mil/cci">CCI-001496</ident>
    <ident system="http://cyber.mil/cci">CCI-002165</ident>
    <ident system="http://cyber.mil/cci">CCI-002235</ident>

These updates will necessitate a new version number for every STIG as it is converted to the new format. For example, if the old version/release of a STIG is V2R6, the updated version/release will be V3R1.

DISA has posted manual STIGs on DoD Cyber Exchange in the new format for review and testing, along with several automated benchmarks. A new XSL stylesheet is included in the STIGs to handle the “legacy” identifiers.

For those who do not have a CAC with DoD Certificates, the STIGs are available at https://public.cyber.mil/stigs/downloads/.

If you have any comments after reviewing these samples, please email them to disa.stig_spt@mail.mil and note in the subject line STIG Testing Comments.

DISA Posts Additional File to Test New STIG/SRG Group and Rule IDs

To provide increased flexibility for the future, DISA is updating the systems that produce STIGs and Security Requirements Guides (SRGs). The initial modification will be to change Group and Rule IDs (Vul and Subvul IDs).

Several manual test STIGs and benchmarks are available for review and comment. Click “More about Critical Updates” for additional details.

DISA Draft Container Platform SRG Comments due 09 September

DISA recently released the Draft Container Platform Security Requirements Guide (SRG) for review. The due date for comments is being revised to 09 September 2020.
