ESXi, Google Chrome, and Exchange 2010 STIGs released

I happened to be browsing DISA's site when I saw that the following STIGs have been released:

  • ESXi 5 (Draft)
  • Google Chrome (both a benchmark and a STIG)
  • Exchange 2010

This is great news in regards to ESXi, as many times we run across ESXi in the field.  While the guidance is to use ESX, most entities migrate to ESXi for cost.  And the guidance does not translate to ESXi, it's just a different animal.  So, I'm glad DISA has released ESXi guidance.  Further, adding a benchmark for Google Chrome will make auditing those systems with Chrome installed much easier.
