Public preview Web security baseline assessment feature for OMS

Public preview Web security baseline assessment feature for OMS. The three primary sources for the web baseline configurations on web servers are: .NET, ASP.NET, and IIS configuration. IIS configurations are highly customizable, enabling users to override granular settings for sites, and applications running under those sites. The scanner checks the settings at each application or site level, and also at the default root level, and compares these settings to what Microsoft recommends for security. This helps you to identify potentially vulnerable settings, and quickly remediate problems. Similar to the OMS security baseline assessment, the OMS security and audit solution scans web servers running IIS every 24 hours, and shows their security state in the OMS security and audit dashboard.

The web security baseline assessment findings are included in the security baseline assessment dashboard. You can see the servers that were assessed, and the unique rules that failed (along with their severity). You can also drill down into more details by selecting the failed rules.

Users can create their own queries by using the filters Type=SecurityBaseline or Type=SecurityBaselineSummary, and BaselineType=Web. For more details about how to use this feature, see Web baseline assessment in OMS security and audit solution. By drilling down into each rule, you can find information regarding potential impact, and vulnerabilities associated with the rules.

In addition to the rules that are currently supported, we plan to extend support for additional rules for evaluation, as well as the integration into Azure Security Center.
