Control Domain Control Name MetadataId Category Title Owner Requirements Description Info Policy#
CMMC_L3 AC.3.018 CMMC_L3_AC.3.018 CMMC L3 AC.3.018 Access Control Prevent non-privileged users from executing privileged functions and capture the execution of such functions in audit logs. Shared Microsoft and the customer share responsibilities for implementing this requirement. Privileged functions include establishing system accounts, performing system integrity checks, conducting patching operations, or administering cryptographic key management activities. Nonprivileged users are individuals that do not possess appropriate authorizations. Circumventing intrusion detection and prevention mechanisms or malicious code protection mechanisms are examples of privileged functions that require protection from non-privileged users. Note that this requirement represents a condition to be achieved by the definition of authorized privileges in AC.1.002. Misuse of privileged functions, either intentionally or unintentionally by authorized users, or by unauthorized external entities that have compromised system accounts, is a serious and ongoing concern and can have significant adverse impacts on organizations. Logging the use of privileged functions is one way to detect such misuse, and in doing so, help mitigate the risk from insider threats and the advanced persistent threat. link 3
CMMC_L3 CM.2.062 CMMC_L3_CM.2.062 CMMC L3 CM.2.062 Configuration Management Employ the principle of least functionality by configuring organizational systems to provide only essential capabilities. Shared Microsoft and the customer share responsibilities for implementing this requirement. Systems can provide a wide variety of functions and services. Some of the functions and services routinely provided by default, may not be necessary to support essential organizational missions, functions, or operations. It is sometimes convenient to provide multiple services from single system components. However, doing so increases risk over limiting the services provided by any one component. Where feasible, organizations limit component functionality to a single function per component. Organizations review functions and services provided by systems or components of systems, to determine which functions and services are candidates for elimination. Organizations disable unused or unnecessary physical and logical ports and protocols to prevent unauthorized connection of devices, transfer of information, and tunneling. Organizations can utilize network scanning tools, intrusion detection and prevention systems, and end-point protections such as firewalls and host-based intrusion detection systems to identify and prevent the use of prohibited functions, ports, protocols, and services. link 2
