Checklist Summary:

The Apache Server 2.4 – UNIX Security Technical Implementation Guide (STIG) provides direction on performing an assessment of a server being used in a web server role using Apache Server 2.4. The STIG should be used to improve the security posture of a Department of Defense (DoD) web server and its associated websites. This document is a requirement for all DoD-owned information systems and DoD-controlled information systems operated by a contractor and/or other entity on behalf of the DoD that receive, process, store, display, or transmit DoD information, regardless of classification and/or sensitivity. These requirements are designed to assist Security Managers (SMs), Information System Security Managers (ISSMs), Information System Security Officers (ISSOs), and System Administrators (SAs) with configuring and maintaining security controls. This guidance supports DoD information system design, development, implementation, and certification and accreditation efforts but is restricted to policies and configurations specific to web servers and sites. There are multiple STIG packages for Apache Server 2.4 for UNIX: one for Apache Server 2.4 server-related requirements and one for Apache Server 2.4 website-related requirements. Both STIGs must be applied to an Apache Server 2.4 web server for a particular operating system. The individual packages are: • Apache Server 2.4 – Server – UNIX • Apache Server 2.4 – Site – UNIX

Checklist Role:

  • Web Server

Target Audience:

This document is a requirement for all DoD-owned information systems and DoD-controlled information systems operated by a contractor and/or other entity on behalf of the DoD that receive, process, store, display, or transmit DoD information, regardless of classification and/or sensitivity. These requirements are designed to assist Security Managers (SMs), Information Assurance Managers (IAMs), IAOs, and System Administrators (SAs) with configuring and maintaining security controls. This guidance supports DoD information system design, development, implementation, certification and accreditation efforts, but is restricted to policies and configurations specific to web servers and sites. The roles of the SA and the web administrator or web master are generally understood but, sometimes, these terms are used interchangeably. The SA is responsible for the OS, while the web administrator or web master usually manages the web site or sites. In some cases, the SA is also the web administrator/web master which is why guidance tends to be written in a certain fashion. The application development group should refer to the organization that actually wrote the web application that is hosted on a web site for further guidance, where applicable.
