Checklist Summary:

The IIS 10.0 Server Security Technical Implementation Guide (STIG) provides direction on performing an assessment of a server being used in a web server role using IIS 10.0 and should be used to improve the security posture of a Department of Defense (DoD) web server and its associated websites. This document is meant for use in conjunction with the Enclave, Network Infrastructure, Application Security and Development, Windows 2012 R2 Server/Windows 8.1, and other appropriate operating system STIGs. Guidance for deployment of web servers within the DoD intranet and the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) will be governed by the appropriate Network Infrastructure STIG provided by DISA. This STIG has been developed based on the Web Server SRG, which was published as guidance to comply with applicable NIST SP 800-53 cybersecurity controls. This guidance is scoped to the Web Server role of Microsoft’s Windows Server 2016/2019/Windows 10, using IIS 10.0. While no other server role or OS will be addressed, Windows Server 2012 does include .NET Framework 4.5 by default, and this STIG requires .NET Framework 4.5 use for enabling specific security settings such as session state. There are multiple STIG packages for IIS 10.0: one for IIS 10.0 server-related requirements and one for IIS 10.0 website-related requirements. Both STIGs must be applied to an IIS 10.0 web server. The individual packages are: • IIS 10.0 Server STIG • IIS 10.0 Site STIG
