Module Description

This module hardens Windows Server 2008 R2 to the most recent CIS Benchmark, which can be found here:

https://www.cisecurity.org/cis-benchmarks/

Setup

To use this module, you need to specify whether or not the node is a Domain Controller or a Member Server by modifying the is_domain_controller parameter. The CIS Benchmark recommends a different security configuration for each type of node. This module defaults to the Member Server configuration.

Instantiate the class as a Domain Controller:

class { 'harden_windows_server':
  is_domain_controller => true,
}

Instantiate the class as a Member Server:

class { 'harden_windows_server':
  is_domain_controller => false,
}

Usage

The CIS Benchmark has two types of security configurations: Level 1 and Level 2.

Level 1 items intend to:

  • be practical and prudent;
  • provide a clear security benefit; and
  • not inhibit the utility of the technology beyond acceptable means.

Level 2 items exhibit one or more of the following characteristics:

  • are intended for environments or use cases where security is paramount
  • acts as defense in depth measure
  • may negatively inhibit the utility or performance of the technology

By default, all Level 1 items are managed by the module. However, each organization is unique and might need to disable certain Level 1 items so that they can configure them themselves. See our reference for a list of all managed items and disable them as shown below, if needed.

For example, the ensure_account_lockout_duration_is_set_to_15_or_more_minutes item sets the lockout duration to 30 minutes by default. If your organization requires a different lockout duration, disable this parameter so you can manually configure it. In a future release, you will be able to manage custom values within the module.

Disable ensure_account_lockout_duration_is_set_to_15_or_more_minutes:

class { 'harden_windows_server':
  is_domain_controller => false,
  ensure_account_lockout_duration_is_set_to_15_or_more_minutes => false,
}

Level 2 items are not managed, by default. To enable a Level 2 item, find the parameter in our reference and set it to true.

Enable ensure_log_on_as_a_batch_job_is_set_to_administrators:

class { 'harden_windows_server':
  is_domain_controller => false,
  ensure_log_on_as_a_batch_job_is_set_to_administrators => true,
}
