The Cisco ISE must prevent non-privileged users from executing privileged functions to include disabling, circumventing, or altering implemented security safeguards/countermeasures.
Preventing non-privileged users from executing privileged functions mitigates the risk that unauthorized individuals or processes may gain unnecessary access to information or privileges.
Privileged functions include, for example, establishing accounts, performing system integrity checks, or administering cryptographic key management activities. Non-privileged users are individuals that do not possess appropriate authorizations.
Verify that only administrator accounts are located in administrative groups.
From the web Admin portal: 1. Navigate to Administration >> System >> Admin Access >> Authorization >> Permissions >> Policy. 2. Verify non-administrative users are located in read only or limited access admin groups. If non-adminstrative accounts are in administrative admin groups, this is a finding.
