  SC-02: Application Partitioning  

base control objective:
The information system separates user functionality (including user interface services) from information system management functionality.

supplemental objective information:
Information system management functionality includes, for example, functions necessary to administer databases, network components, workstations, or servers, and typically requires privileged user access. The separation of user functionality from information system management functionality is either physical or logical and is accomplished by using different computers, different central processing units, different instances of the operating system, different network addresses, combinations of these methods, or other methods as appropriate. An example of this type of separation is observed in web administrative interfaces that use separate authentication methods for users of any other information system resources. This may include isolating the administrative interface on a different domain and with additional access controls.

enhancements to the base objective:

(1) The information system prevents the presentation of information system management-related functionality at an interface for general (i.e., non-privileged) users.
Enhancement Supplemental Guidance: The intent of this control enhancement is to ensure that administration options are not available to general users (including prohibiting the use of the grey-out option commonly used to eliminate accessibility to such information). For example, administration options are not presented until the user has appropriately established a session with administrator privileges.
