    SV-250994r802204_rule MOIS-ND-000510 CCI-000166 HIGH MobileIron Sentry, for PKI-based authentication, must be configured to map validated certificates to unique user accounts. Without mapping the PKI certificate to a unique user account, the ability to determine the identities of individuals or the status of their non-repudiation is considerably impacted during forensic analysis. A strength of using PKI as MFA is that it can he
    SV-250995r802207_rule MOIS-ND-000530 CCI-000803 HIGH MobileIron Sentry must use FIPS 140-2 approved algorithms for authentication to a cryptographic module. Unapproved mechanisms that are used for authentication to the cryptographic module are not validated and therefore cannot be relied upon to provide confidentiality or integrity, and DoD data may be compromised. Sentry utilizing encryption is required to
    SV-250996r802210_rule MOIS-ND-000550 CCI-001133 HIGH MobileIron Sentry must terminate all network connections associated with a device management session at the end of the session, or the session must be terminated after 10 minutes of inactivity except to fulfill documented and validated mission requirement. Terminating an idle session within a short time period reduces the window of opportunity for unauthorized personnel to take control of a management session enabled on the console or console port that has been left unattended. In addition, quickly terminat
    SV-250997r802213_rule MOIS-ND-000580 CCI-001188 MEDIUM MobileIron Sentry must generate unique session identifiers using a FIPS 140-2 approved random number generator. Sequentially generated session IDs can be easily guessed by an attacker. Employing the concept of randomness in the generation of unique session identifiers helps to protect against brute-force attacks to determine future session identifiers. Unique sess
    SV-250998r802216_rule MOIS-ND-000690 CCI-001858 LOW MobileIron Sentry must generate an immediate real-time alert of all audit failure events requiring real-time alerts. It is critical for the appropriate personnel to be aware if a system is at risk of failing to process audit logs as required. Without a real-time alert, security personnel may be unaware of an impending failure of the audit capability and system operation
    SV-250999r802219_rule MOIS-ND-000700 CCI-000366 MEDIUM MobileIron Sentry must be configured to synchronize internal information system clocks using redundant authoritative time sources. The loss of connectivity to a particular authoritative time source will result in the loss of time synchronization (free-run mode) and increasingly inaccurate time stamps on audit events and other functions. Multiple time sources provide redundancy by in

Without authenticating devices, unidentified or unknown devices may be introduced, thereby facilitating malicious activity. Bidirectional authentication provides stronger safeguards to validate the identity of other devices for connections that are of gre
    SV-251001r802225_rule MOIS-ND-000810 CCI-003123 HIGH MobileIron Sentry must be configured to implement cryptographic mechanisms using a FIPS 140-2 approved algorithm to protect the confidentiality of remote maintenance sessions. This requires the use of secure protocols instead of their unsecured counterparts, such as SSH instead of telnet, SCP instead of FTP, and HTTPS instead of HTTP. If unsecured protocols (lacking cryptographic mechanisms) are used for sessions, the contents
    SV-251002r802228_rule MOIS-ND-000900 CCI-001851 LOW MobileIron Sentry must off-load audit records onto a different system or media than the system being audited. Information stored in one location is vulnerable to accidental or incidental deletion or alteration. Off-loading is a common process in information systems with limited audit storage capacity.
    SV-251003r802231_rule MOIS-ND-000930 CCI-000345 LOW MobileIron Sentry must enforce access restrictions associated with changes to the system components. Changes to the hardware or software components of the network device can have significant effects on the overall security of the network. Therefore, only qualified and authorized individuals should be allowed administrative access to the network device fo
    SV-251004r802234_rule MOIS-ND-000950 CCI-000366 LOW MobileIron Sentry must be configured to conduct backups of system level information contained in the information system when changes occur. This control requires the network device to support the organizational central backup process for system-level information associated with the network device. This function may be provided by the network device itself; however, the preferred best practice
    SV-251005r802237_rule MOIS-ND-000970 CCI-000366 MEDIUM MobileIron Sentry must obtain its public key certificates from an appropriate certificate policy through an approved service provider.
