Turn on Secure Virtual Memory Secure virtual memory must be enabled. Secure virtual memory ensures that data in memory is encrypted when it is swapped to disk. This prevents users and applications from accessing potentially sensitive information, such as user names and passwords, from the swap space on the hard drive.


Parameter: enabled/disabled


Technical Mechanism: To check if the system is using secure virtual memory run the following command: sysctl vm.swapusage If the result does not show '(encrypted)', this is a finding.
