  1. Set up an Apache web server on an EC2 instance. Set up an Apache web server on multiple EC2 instances by creating an Auto Scaling group. You can create multiple EC2 instances using Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling, an AWS service that allows you to increase or decrease the number of EC2 instances in a group according to your application needs.
  2. The Apache Software Foundation and the Apache HTTP Server Project has announced the release of version 2.4.2 of the Apache HTTP Server (“Apache”). This version of Apache is the second GA release of the new generation 2.4.x branch of Apache HTTPD and represents fifteen years of innovation by the project.
  3. Compile Apache HTTP 2.4.5 with SSL module; Get SSL Certificate; Configure Apache to support SSL; Install Apache with SSL from Source. To configure SSL, Apache HTTP must be compiled with modssl. I’ll use CentOS 7 VM from Digital Ocean to demonstrate this. Login to Linux server with root and download the latest version of Apache.

The Apache web server application, libraries, and configuration files must only be accessible to privileged users. The Apache web server can be modified through parameter modification, patch installation, upgrades to the Apache web server or modules, and security parameter changes. With each of these changes.

The Apache HTTP Server Project is an effort to develop and maintain anopen-source HTTP server for modern operating systems including UNIX andWindows. The goal of this project is to provide a secure, efficient andextensible server that provides HTTP services in sync with the current HTTPstandards.

The Apache HTTP Server ('httpd') was launched in 1995 and it has been the most popular web server on the Internet sinceApril 1996. It has celebrated its 25th birthday as a project in February 2020.

The Apache HTTP Server is a project of The Apache SoftwareFoundation.

Checklist Summary:

The Apache Server 2.4 – UNIX Security Technical Implementation Guide (STIG) provides direction on performing an assessment of a server being used in a web server role using Apache Server 2.4. The STIG should be used to improve the security posture of a Department of Defense (DoD) web server and its associated websites.This document is a requirement for all DoD-owned information systems and DoD-controlled information systems operated by a contractor and/or other entity on behalf of the DoD that receive, process, store, display, or transmit DoD information, regardless of classification and/or sensitivity. These requirements are designed to assist Security Managers (SMs), Information System Security Managers (ISSMs), Information System Security Officers (ISSOs), and System Administrators (SAs) with configuring and maintaining security controls. This guidance supports DoD information system design, development, implementation, and certification and accreditation efforts but is restricted to policies and configurations specific to web servers and sites.There are multiple STIG packages for Apache Server 2.4 for UNIX: one for Apache Server 2.4 server-related requirements and one for Apache Server 2.4 website-related requirements. Both STIGs must be applied to an Apache Server 2.4 web server for a particular operating system. The individual packages are:• Apache Server 2.4 – Server – UNIX• Apache Server 2.4 – Site – UNIX

Target Audience:

This document is a requirement for all DoD-owned information systems and DoD-controlled information systems operated by a contractor and/or other entity on behalf of the DoD that receive, process, store, display, or transmit DoD information, regardless of classification and/or sensitivity. These requirements are designed to assist Security Managers (SMs), Information Assurance Managers (IAMs), IAOs, and System Administrators (SAs) with configuring and maintaining security controls. This guidance supports DoD information system design, development, implementation, certification and accreditation efforts, but is restricted to policies and configurations specific to web servers and sites. The roles of the SA and the web administrator or web master are generally understood but, sometimes, these terms are used interchangeably. The SA is responsible for the OS, while the web administrator or web master usually manages the web site or sites. In some cases, the SA is also the web administrator/web master which is why guidance tends to be written in a certain fashion. The application development group should refer to the organization that actually wrote the web application that is hosted on a web site for further guidance, where applicable.
