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.
