Fix Recommendation

Configure the operating system to require authentication upon booting into single-user and maintenance modes.

Add or modify the "ExecStart" line in "/usr/lib/systemd/system/rescue.service" to include "/usr/sbin/sulogin":

ExecStart=-/bin/sh -c "/usr/sbin/sulogin; /usr/bin/systemctl --fail --no-block default"

Check Contents

Verify the operating system must require authentication upon booting into single-user and maintenance modes.

Check that the operating system requires authentication upon booting into single-user mode with the following command:

# grep -i execstart /usr/lib/systemd/system/rescue.service | grep -i sulogin

ExecStart=-/bin/sh -c "/usr/sbin/sulogin; /usr/bin/systemctl --fail --no-block default"

If "ExecStart" does not have "/usr/sbin/sulogin" as an option, this is a finding.
