Verify if IIS is not installed by performing the following:
Search for "Features".
Select "Turn Windows features on or off".
If the entries for "Internet Information Services" or "Internet Information Services Hostable Web Core" are selected, this is a finding.
If an application requires IIS or a subset to be installed to function, this needs be documented with the IAO. In addition, any applicable requirements from the IIS STIG must be addressed.
