2.2.16 Ensure 'Create permanent shared objects' is set to 'No One'


This user right is useful to kernel-mode components that extend the object namespace. However, components that run in kernel mode have this user right inherently. Therefore, it is typically not necessary to specifically assign this user right.

The recommended state for this setting is: No One.


Users who have the Create permanent shared objects user right could create new shared objects and expose sensitive data to the network.


None - this is the default behavior.


To establish the recommended configuration via GP, set the following UI path to No One:

Computer Configuration\Policies\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\User Rights Assignment\Create permanent shared objects

Default Value:

No one.
