NIST SP 800-171 & CMMC 2.0 Control 3.1.13 Requirement:

Employ cryptographic mechanisms to protect the confidentiality of remote access sessions.

NIST SP 800-171 & CMMC 2.0 3.1.13 Requirement Explanation:

Remote access sessions refer to remote VPN connections. By using TLS and IPSec you can encrypt the connection thus ensuring confidentiality. The VPN appliance you use must be FIPS validated. You can contact the appliance manufacturer to confirm if it is.

Example NIST SP 800-171 & CMMC 2.0 3.1.13 Implementation:

Protect your VPN connections using encryption (TLS and IPSec). Ensure that the VPN appliance you use is FIPS validated.

NIST SP 800-171 & CMMC 2.0 3.1.13 Scenario(s):

- Scenario 1:

Your company enables TLS and IPSec encryption for its remote VPN connections and ensures that the VPN appliance is FIPS validated.
