Secure deployment testing

1    Verifying that the deployment process is functionally correct
2    Making sure that the secure deployment documentation is correct and provides best security practices.
3    Validating the permissions and rights required for the different servers and user roles, business users, visitors, editors, publishers, and administrators. This includes:
    Secure ACLs on configuration files, registry keys, temporary files, named pipes, murexes and all other securable objects.
    Correct configuration of database roles, stored procedures, and service/application accounts
    Looking for components running by default when they shouldn’t be
    Investigating network ports. Verify IDL files for correctness.
    Sensitive data is not exposed in logs, event viewer, remote error messages, traces, and registry keys
    Ensure failures are graceful, default system state is access denied (instead of all access) and no critical information is leaked out to client/remote caller.
4    Verify the lockdown templates/settings representing common “server roles” that the product is used in
5    Verifying that the least privilege principle is followed.
6    Verify that the separation of privilege principle is followed.
