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.
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.
