An alternative to remote administration of the web server is to perform web server administration locally at the console.

If web administration is performed remotely the following checks will apply:
 
If administration of the server is performed remotely, it will only be performed securely by system administrators.
 
If website administration or web application administration has been delegated, those users will be documented and approved by the ISSO.
 
Remote administration must be in compliance with any requirements contained within the Windows Server STIGs, and any applicable Network STIGs.
 
Remote administration of any kind will be restricted to documented and authorized personnel.
 
All users performing remote administration must be authenticated.
 
All remote sessions will be encrypted and they will utilize FIPS 140-2-approved protocols.
 
FIPS 140-2-approved TLS versions include TLS V1.1 or greater.
 
Review with site management how remote administration, if applicable, is configured on the website.
 
If remote management meets the criteria listed above, this is not a finding.
 
If remote management is utilized and does not meet the criteria listed above, this is a finding.</check-content></check></Rule></Group><Group id="V-76681"><title>SRG-APP-000092-WSR-000055</title><description>&lt;GroupDescription&gt;&lt;/GroupDescription&gt;</description><Rule id="SV-91377r1_rule" severity="medium" weight="10.0"><version>IISW-SV-000102</version><title>The enhanced logging for the IIS 8.5 web server must be enabled and capture all user and web server events.</title><description>&lt;VulnDiscussion&gt;Log files are a critical component to the successful management of an IS used within the DoD. By generating log files with useful information web administrators can leverage them in the event of a disaster, malicious attack, or other site specific needs.
 
Ascertaining the correct order of the events that occurred is important during forensic analysis. Events that appear harmless by themselves might be flagged as a potential threat when properly viewed in sequence. By also establishing the event date and time, an event can be properly viewed with an enterprise tool to fully see a possible threat in its entirety.
 
Without sufficient information establishing when the log event occurred, investigation into the cause of event is severely hindered. Log record content that may be necessary to satisfy the requirement of this control includes, but is not limited to, time stamps, source and destination IP addresses, user/process identifiers, event descriptions, application-specific events, success/fail indications, file names involved, access control, or flow control rules invoked.

However, because IIS takes some time to flush logs to disk, administrators do not have access to logging information in real-time. In addition, text-based log files can be difficult and time-consuming to process.
 
In IIS 8.5, the administrator has the option of sending logging information to Event Tracing for Windows (ETW). This option gives the administrator the ability to use standard query tools, or create custom tools, for viewing real-time logging information in ETW. This provides a significant advantage over parsing text-based log files that are not updated in real time.
