Azure_Security_Benchmark_v3.0 DP-6 Azure_Security_Benchmark_v3.0_DP-6 Azure Security Benchmark DP-6 Data Protection Use a secure key management process Shared **Security Principle:** Document and implement an enterprise cryptographic key management standard, processes, and procedures to control your key lifecycle. When there is a need to use customer-managed key in the services, use a secured key vault service for key generation, distribution, and storage. Rotate and revoke your keys based on the defined schedule and when there is a key retirement or compromise. **Azure Guidance:** Use Azure Key Vault to create and control your encryption keys life cycle, including key generation, distribution, and storage. Rotate and revoke your keys in Azure Key Vault and your service based on the defined schedule and when there is a key retirement or compromise. When there is a need to use customer-managed key (CMK) in the workload services or applications, ensure you follow the best practices: - Use a key hierarchy to generate a separate data encryption key (DEK) with your key encryption key (KEK) in your key vault. - Ensure keys are registered with Azure Key Vault and implement via key IDs in each service or application. If you need to bring your own key (BYOK) to the services (i.e., importing HSM-protected keys from your on-premises HSMs into Azure Key Vault), follow the recommended guideline to perform the key generation and key transfer. Note: Refer to the below for the FIPS 140-2 level for Azure Key Vault types and FIPS compliance level. - Software-protected keys in vaults (Premium & Standard SKUs): FIPS 140-2 Level 1 - HSM-protected keys in vaults (Premium SKU): FIPS 140-2 Level 2 - HSM-protected keys in Managed HSM: FIPS 140-2 Level 3 **Implementation and additional context:** Azure Key Vault overview: https://docs.microsoft.com/azure/key-vault/general/overview Azure data encryption at rest--Key Hierarchy: https://docs.microsoft.com/azure/security/fundamentals/encryption-atrest#key-hierarchy BYOK(Bring Your Own Key) specification: https://docs.microsoft.com/azure/key-vault/keys/byok-specification n/a link 2

FedRAMP_High_R4 IA-5 FedRAMP_High_R4_IA-5 FedRAMP High IA-5 Identification And Authentication Authenticator Management Shared n/a The organization manages information system authenticators by: a. Verifying, as part of the initial authenticator distribution, the identity of the individual, group, role, or device receiving the authenticator; b. Establishing initial authenticator content for authenticators defined by the organization; c. Ensuring that authenticators have sufficient strength of mechanism for their intended use; d. Establishing and implementing administrative procedures for initial authenticator distribution, for lost/compromised or damaged authenticators, and for revoking authenticators; e. Changing default content of authenticators prior to information system installation; f. Establishing minimum and maximum lifetime restrictions and reuse conditions for authenticators; g. Changing/refreshing authenticators [Assignment: organization-defined time period by authenticator type]; h. Protecting authenticator content from unauthorized disclosure and modification; i. Requiring individuals to take, and having devices implement, specific security safeguards to protect authenticators; and j. Changing authenticators for group/role accounts when membership to those accounts changes. Supplemental Guidance: Individual authenticators include, for example, passwords, tokens, biometrics, PKI certificates, and key cards. Initial authenticator content is the actual content (e.g., the initial password) as opposed to requirements about authenticator content (e.g., minimum password length). In many cases, developers ship information system components with factory default authentication credentials to allow for initial installation and configuration. Default authentication credentials are often well known, easily discoverable, and present a significant security risk. The requirement to protect individual authenticators may be implemented via control PL-4 or PS-6 for authenticators in the possession of individuals and by controls AC-3, AC-6, and SC-28 for authenticators stored within organizational information systems (e.g., passwords stored in hashed or encrypted formats, files containing encrypted or hashed passwords accessible with administrator privileges). Information systems support individual authenticator management by organization-defined settings and restrictions for various authenticator characteristics including, for example, minimum password length, password composition, validation time window for time synchronous one-time tokens, and number of allowed rejections during the verification stage of biometric authentication. Specific actions that can be taken to safeguard authenticators include, for example, maintaining possession of individual authenticators, not loaning or sharing individual authenticators with others, and reporting lost, stolen, or compromised authenticators immediately. Authenticator management includes issuing and revoking, when no longer needed, authenticators for temporary access such as that required for remote maintenance. Device authenticators include, for example, certificates and passwords. Related controls: AC-2, AC-3, AC-6, CM-6, IA-2, IA-4, IA-8, PL-4, PS-5, PS-6, SC-12, SC-13, SC-17, SC-28.
