Fix Recommendation

Implement only CODEC's with a local API preventing unrestricted access to user or administrator configuration settings and CODEC controls without a password.

Check Contents

Review site documentation to confirm a CODEC’s API does not provide unrestricted access to user or administrator configuration settings and without the use of an appropriate password.

Review the vendor documentation on the API. Look for information on restricting access to user or administrator configuration settings. Determine what user or administrator configuration settings are accessible or programmable via the API. Determine all API access methods and communications protocols, meaning local serial connection or “remotely” via a network.
AND
Establish a connection to the CODEC’s API using the information gained above and a PC; disconnect any AV control panel if necessary. Attempt to gain access and to change various user or administrator configuration settings via the API.

If a CODEC's local API does not prevent unrestricted access to user or administrator configuration settings and CODEC controls without a password, this is a finding.
