SC-7(17): Automated Enforcement Of Protocol Formats
(Not part of any baseline)
- NIST Special Publication 800-53 Revision 5:
- SC-7(17): Automated Enforcement of Protocol Formats
The information system enforces adherence to protocol formats.
Information system components that enforce protocol formats include, for example, deep packet inspection firewalls and XML gateways. Such system components verify adherence to protocol formats/specifications (e.g., IEEE) at the application layer and identify significant vulnerabilities that cannot be detected by devices operating at the network or transport layers.
