Fix Recommendation

If user authentication intermediary services are provided, configure the BIG-IP Core as follows:

Configure a policy in the BIG-IP APM module to require multifactor authentication for remote access with privileged accounts in such a way that one of the factors is provided by a device separate from the system gaining access.

Apply APM policy to the applicable Virtual Server(s) in the BIG-IP LTM module to require multifactor authentication for remote access with privileged accounts to virtual servers in such a way that one of the factors is provided by a device separate from the system gaining access.

Check Contents

If the BIG-IP Core does not provide user authentication intermediary services for virtual servers, this is not applicable.

When user authentication intermediary services are provided, verify the BIG-IP Core is configured as follows:

Verify Virtual Server(s) in the BIG-IP LTM module are configured with an APM policy to require multifactor authentication for remote access with privileged accounts in such a way that one of the factors is provided by a device separate from the system gaining access.

Navigate to the BIG-IP System manager >> Local Traffic >> Virtual Servers >> Virtual Servers List tab.

Select Virtual Servers(s) from the list to verify.

Verify under "Access Policy" section, that "Access Policy" has been set to use an APM access policy to require multifactor authentication for remote access with privileged accounts to virtual servers in such a way that one of the factors is provided by a device separate from the system gaining access.

If the BIG-IP Core does not implement multifactor authentication for remote access to privileged accounts in such a way that one of the factors is provided by a device separate from the system gaining access, this is a finding.
