IISW-SV-000132 - The IIS 8.5 web server must separate the hosted applications from hosted web server management functionality.

Information

The separation of user functionality from web server management can be accomplished by moving management functions to a separate IP address or port. To further separate the management functions, separate authentication methods and certificates should be used.

By moving the management functionality, the possibility of accidental discovery of the management functions by non-privileged users during hosted application use is minimized.

NOTE: Nessus has provided the target output to assist in reviewing the benchmark to ensure target compliance.

Solution

Develop a method to manage the hosted applications, either by moving its management functions off of the IIS 8.5 web server or by accessing the application's management via a uniquely assigned IP address.
