| To ensure accountability and prevent unauthenticated access, privileged users must utilize multifactor authentication to prevent potential misuse and compromise of the system.
Multifactor authentication is defined as using two or more factors to achieve authentication.
(i) Something a user knows (e.g., password/PIN);
(ii) Something a user has (e.g., cryptographic identification device, token); or
(iii) Something a user is (e.g., biometric).
A privileged account is defined as an information system account with authorizations of a privileged user.
Local access is defined as access to an organizational information system by a user (or process acting on behalf of a user) communicating through a direct connection without the use of a network.
Applications integrating with the DoD Active Directory and utilize the DoD Common Access Card (CAC) are examples of compliant multifactor authentication solutions.
