MD4X-00-006600 - MongoDB must be configured in accordance with the security configuration settings based on DoD security configuration and implementation guidance, including STIGs, NSA configuration guides, CTOs, DTMs, and IAVMs.

Information

Configuring MongoDB to implement organization-wide security implementation guides and security checklists ensures compliance with federal standards and establishes a common security baseline across DoD that reflects the most restrictive security posture consistent with operational requirements.

In addition to this SRG, sources of guidance on security and information assurance exist. These include NSA configuration guides, CTOs, DTMs, and IAVMs. MongoDB must be configured in compliance with guidance from all such relevant sources.

NOTE: Nessus has not performed this check. Please review the benchmark to ensure target compliance.

Solution

Configure MongoDB in accordance with security configuration settings and guidance of this STIG document to meet the configurations required by the STIG, NSA configuration guidelines, CTOs, DTMs, and IAVMs.

It is recommended that MongoDB Enterprise be installed and upgraded though the use of a package manager (YUM/RPM RedHat) where it meets the organizational or site-specific policy:
