Text Differences

Title

The operating system must provide the capability for authorized users to select a user session to capture/record or view/hear.

Check Content

Verify the operating system provides the capability for authorized users to select a user session to capture/record or view/hear. If it does not, this is a finding.

Discussion

Without the capability to select a user session to capture/record or view/hear, investigations into suspicious or harmful events would be hampered by the volume of information captured. The volume of information captured may also adversely impact the operation of the network. Session audits may include monitoring keystrokes, screen monitoring software, remote desktop recording, screen mirroring, and recording information and/or file transfers.

Fix

Configure the operating system to provide the capability for authorized users to select a user session to capture/record or view/hear.
