Fix Recommendation

From the vSphere Web Client go to Administration >> Access Control >> Roles

Highlight each role and click the pencil button if it is enabled. Remove the following permissions from any group other than Administrator and any site-specific cryptographic group(s):

Cryptographic Operations privileges
Global.Diagnostics
Host.Inventory.Add host to cluster
Host.Inventory.Add standalone host
Host.Local operations.Manage user groups

Check Contents

From the vSphere Web Client go to Administration >> Access Control >> Roles

Highlight each role and click the pencil button if it is enabled. Verify that only the "Administrator" and any site-specific cryptographic group(s) have the following permissions:

Cryptographic Operations privileges
Global.Diagnostics
Host.Inventory.Add host to cluster
Host.Inventory.Add standalone host
Host.Local operations.Manage user groups

or

From a PowerCLI command prompt while connected to the vCenter server run the following command:
$roles = Get-VIRole
ForEach($role in $roles){
$privileges = $role.PrivilegeList
If($privileges -match "Crypto*" -or $privileges -match "Global.Diagnostics" -or $privileges -match "Host.Inventory.Add*" -or $privileges -match "Host.Local operations.Manage user groups"){
Write-Host "$role has Cryptographic privileges"
}
}

If any role other than "Administrator" or any site-specific group(s) have any of these permissions, this is a finding.
