Windows Server 2012 Domain Name System (DNS) Security Technical Implementation Guide (STIG) Version 1

DISA has released the Windows Server 2012 DNS STIG Version 1. The
requirements of the STIG become effective immediately. The STIG is available
on IASE at:

VMS Users: The Windows 2012 Server DNS STIG requirements will need to be
manually applied to an asset in VMS by adding the “Windows 2012 DNS” element
(found under Computing>Application>DNS Applications) to the asset’s posture.

The “Windows DNS” element from the previous version DNS STIG will still
remain applied to the asset’s posture, along with the requirements related
to the previous version. That previous version element should be manually
removed from an asset’s posture once the assessment results from the
previous version are no longer needed.
