This Security Technical Implementation Guide is published as a tool to improve the security of Department of Defense (DoD) information systems. The requirements are derived from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) 800-53 and related documents.

XenDesktop StoreFront must accept Personal Identity Verification (PIV) credentials.

Rule IDs
  • SV-96145r1_rule
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-000033, SRG-APP-000392, SRG-APP-000439, SRG-APP-000440, SRG-APP-000442
Checks: C-81171r1_chk

Open the Citrix StoreFront management console. Select the "Store" node in the left pane. In the "Actions" pane, click "Manage Authentication Methods". Select only the "Smart Card" method. If the "Smart Card" method is not selected or if other methods are selected, this is a finding. Note: If a NetScaler Gateway is handling authentication, "Pass-through from NetScaler Gateway" may also be selected, this is not a finding.
