Hands-On Steps

 

 

 

 

 

 

1. From your computer workstation, create a new text document called DoD Lab #2.

 

2. Consider the following scenario:

 

 

 

 

 

 

You work for a governmental unit of DoD and your manager has asked you to write a brief paper

 

 

 

outlining the importance of having the proper DoD-approved frameworks in place when an organization

 

 

 

wants to conduct business with a governmental unit. Your task is to evaluate all the available

 

 

 

DoD, IASE, and NIST hardening guides on the Internet and to write a brief analysis of the technical

 

 

 

controls and hardening guides that should be implemented as a minimum guideline for divisions of

 

 

 

government agencies such as yours.

 

 

 

 

3. Launch your Web browser. In the address box, type the Web address: http://www.defense.gov/

 

RegisteredSites/RegisteredSites.aspx. Review the DoD list of registered websites and review the content

 

of some of the information assurance sites. In your text document, list three of the DoD-registered

 

 

 

 

 

 

websites that provide guidelines and documents related to information assurance.

 

 

 

 

4. Change the Web address to http://www.disa.mil/. Review the Defense Information Systems Agency

 

(DISA) website, focusing on the agency’s services and capabilities. Evaluate which services and

 

 

 

 

 

 

capabilities are relevant to the task of formulating a framework for secure government operations.

 

 

 

 

Next, type the Web address http://iase.disa.mil/index2.html into the address bar, and review DISA’s

 

 

 

 

 

 

Information Assurance Support Environment.

 

 

 

 

5. Click the link for Security Technical Implementation Guides (STIGS) in the left-hand column on the page.

 

Review the STIGs available, focusing on the following topics:

 

 

 

 

 

 

a. Network Hardening Guides

 

 

 

b. Secure Remote Computing

 

 

 

c. Windows Operating Systems

 

 

 

d. Application Security

 

 

 

 

6. In your text document, write an executive summary that identifies two common auditing frameworks

 

used for DoD. Discuss these and be sure to include a discussion of the hardening guidelines and

 

 

 

 

 

 

security checklists used by DoD.

 

 

 

 

7. Submit the text document to your instructor as a deliverable for this lab.
