Vuln Rule Version CCI Severity Title Description
SV-96141r1_rule CXEN-RE-000030 CCI-000068 HIGH Citrix Receiver must implement DoD-approved encryption. Without confidentiality protection mechanisms, unauthorized individuals may gain access to sensitive information via a remote access session. Remote access is access to DoD nonpublic information systems by an authorized user (or an information system) communicating through an external, non-organization-controlled network. Remote access methods include, for example, dial-up, broadband, and wireless. Encryption provides a means to secure the remote connection to prevent unauthorized access to the data traversing the remote access connection thereby providing a degree of confidentiality. The encryption strength of mechanism is selected based on the security categorization of the information. Satisfies: SRG-APP-000014, SRG-APP-000015, SRG-APP-000142, SRG-APP-000219, SRG-APP-000416, SRG-APP-000427, SRG-APP-000439, SRG-APP-000440, SRG-APP-000441, SRG-APP-000442, SRG-APP-000514
SV-96143r1_rule CXEN-RE-000855 CCI-001953 MEDIUM Citrix Receiver must accept Personal Identity Verification (PIV) credentials. The use of PIV credentials facilitates standardization and reduces the risk of unauthorized access. DoD has mandated the use of the CAC to support identity management and personal authentication for systems covered under HSPD 12, as well as a primary component of layered protection for national security systems. Satisfies: SRG-APP-000391, SRG-APP-000392
