Checklist Summary:

The IBM WebSphere Traditional V9.x Security Technical Implementation Guide (STIG) is published as a tool to improve the security of Department of Defense (DoD) information systems. This document is meant for use in conjunction with other STIGs such as the Application Security and Development and appropriate Operating System (OS) STIGs. WebSphere is a Java-based software framework and middleware that is designed to host Java-based web applications. The product provides software libraries that hosted applications can use as well as an operating environment for web-based applications. IBM currently offers WebSphere in different profiles, including the WebSphere Liberty and the WebSphere Traditional profiles. This STIG was written to be applied to the WebSphere Traditional profile version 9.0. The scope of the STIG is intended to address the management and security posture of the WebSphere product, not the applications hosted on the application server.
