STIG Hardening for Supervisor Clusters on vSphere with Tanzu 8


VMware is a trusted partner in highly secure, mission-critical systems around the world, including the United States Department of Defense (DoD). In the DoD, all IT systems must adhere to the rigorous Risk Management Framework (RMF) as defined in DoDI 8510.01. A critical component of RMF is the mandatory implementation of Security Technical Implementation Guides (STIGs) and Security Requirements Guidelines (SRGs) as maintained by the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA). To support our customers, vSphere with Tanzu is evaluated and hardened against multiple standards, including the Photon OS 3.0 STIG Readiness Guide and the DISA Kubernetes STIG. This report documents product component compliance with those standards.
