AC-3(12): Assert and Enforce Application Access
(Not part of any baseline)
Control is new to this version of the control set.
- Require applications to assert, as part of the installation process, the access needed to the following system applications and functions: [Assignment: organization-defined system applications and functions];
- Provide an enforcement mechanism to prevent unauthorized access; and
- Approve access changes after initial installation of the application.
Asserting and enforcing application access is intended to address applications that need to access existing system applications and functions, including user contacts, global positioning systems, cameras, keyboards, microphones, networks, phones, or other files.
