| To assure accountability and prevent unauthenticated access, non-privileged users must utilize multifactor authentication to prevent potential misuse and compromise of the system.
Multifactor authentication uses two or more factors to achieve authentication. Use of password for user remote access for non-privileged account is not authorized.
(i) Something you know (e.g., password/PIN);
(ii) Something you have (e.g., cryptographic identification device, token); or
(iii) Something you are (e.g., biometric).
A non-privileged account is any information system account with authorizations of a non-privileged user.
Network access is any access to a network element by a user (or a process acting on behalf of a user) communicating through a network.
The DoD CAC with DoD-approved PKI is an example of multifactor authentication. |
