Checklist Summary:

The SharePoint Security Technical Implementation Guide (STIG) provides guidance for secure configuration and usage of Microsoft's SharePoint implementation. The STIG provides security guidance for SharePoint deployments in a single server or server farm consisting of multiple servers. This overview document gives technology-specific background and information on conducting a security review for SharePoint 2010 Server. SharePoint Foundation and previous versions of SharePoint are not addressed, although there is significant overlap in the security impacts for these products.

Checklist Role:

  • Application Server

Known Issues:

Not provided.

Target Audience:

This document is a requirement for all DoD-administered systems and all systems connected to DoD networks. These requirements are designed to assist System Managers (SMs), Information Assurance Managers (IAMs), Information Assurance Officers (IAOs), and Systems Administrators (SAs) with configuring and maintaining security controls. This guidance supports DoD system design, development, implementation, certification, and accreditation efforts.

Target Operational Environment:

  • Managed
  • Specialized Security-Limited Functionality (SSLF)

Testing Information:

SharePoint 2010 requires 64-bit hardware for each server in the farm, including the database server, and therefore requires 64-bit versions of Windows and Microsoft SQL (Structured Query Language) Server. Windows Server 2008 is the minimum Operating System (OS) version for production servers. Minimum hardware and software requirements are available at TechNet, http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc262485.aspx.

Regulatory Compliance:

DoD Directive (DoDD) 8500.1 DoD Instruction (DoDI) 8500.2
