Checklist Summary:
This Network Infrastructure Security Checklist provides the procedures for conducting a Security Readiness Review (SRR) to determine compliance with the requirements in the Network Infrastructure Security Technical Implementation Guide (STIG). This Checklist document must be used together with the corresponding version of the STIG document. This guide focuses strictly on perimeter network components and concepts which protect a DoD private LAN. This checklist ensures the site has properly installed and implemented specific network components and that it is being managed in a way that is secure, efficient, and effective, through procedures outlined in the checklist. The items reviewed are based on standards and requirements published by DISA in the Security Handbook and the Network Infrastructure Security Technical Implementation Guide. The procedures in this document are part of the effort to ensure that the security configuration guidelines required by Department of Defense (DOD) Directive 8500.1, Information Assurance, and other relevant guidance have been properly implemented.
