[CCE-28310-1] console_login

CCE#: CCE-28310-1
Setting Name: console_login
Description:
If console login is enabled, the user can type ">console" for the user name to get a console login.

Parameters: N / A
Technical Mechanism: In loginwindow.plist, set the DisableConsoleAccess key = true to prevent console logins. If the key does not exist, console login is allowed.

Reference: N / A

Function: Authentication

Rationale: Many system messages are printed to the console and may disclose information about other users or applications; access to the console is a risk that may be justified in the SOHO case where an end user may be more responsible for system management.


SOHO: enable console login
Enterprise: disable console login
SSLF: disable console login


Additional Mechanism: N / A


OVAL Content: N / A
