AS24-W2-000890 - An Apache web server must maintain the confidentiality of controlled information during transmission through the use of an approved TLS version - SSLEngine

Information

Transport Layer Security (TLS) is a required transmission protocol for a web server hosting controlled information. The use of TLS provides confidentiality of data in transit between the web server and client. FIPS 140-2 approved TLS versions must be enabled and non-FIPS-approved SSL versions must be disabled.

NIST SP 800-52 defines the approved TLS versions for government applications.

Satisfies: SRG-APP-000014-WSR-000006, SRG-APP-000015-WSR-000014, SRG-APP-000033-WSR-000169, SRG-APP-000172-WSR-000104, SRG-APP-000179-WSR-000110, SRG-APP-000179-WSR-000111, SRG-APP-000206-WSR-000128, SRG-APP-000439-WSR-000151, SRG-APP-000439-WSR-000152, SRG-APP-000439-WSR-000156, SRG-APP-000441-WSR-000181, SRG-APP-000442-WSR-000182, SRG-APP-000429-WSR-000113

Solution

Ensure the 'SSLProtocol' is added and looks like the following in the <'INSTALLED PATH'>\conf\httpd.conf file:

SSLProtocol -ALL +TLSv1.2

Ensure the 'SSLEngine' parameter is set to 'ON' inside the 'VirtualHost' directive.
