Prevent Users from Logging in as Root Directly Administrator users must never log in directly as root. To assure individual accountability and prevent unauthorized access, logging in as root over a remote connection must be disabled. Administrators should only run commands as root after first authenticating with their individual user names and passwords.


Parameter: yes/no


Technical Mechanism: To check if SSH has root logins enabled, run the following command: sudo grep ^PermitRootLogin /etc/sshd_config If there is no result, or the result is set to 'yes', this is a finding.
