APPL-12-000033 - The macOS system must be configured to disable password forwarding for FileVault2.


When 'FileVault' and Multifactor Authentication are configured on the operating system, a dedicated user must be configured to ensure that the implemented Multifactor Authentication rules are enforced. If a dedicated user is not configured to decrypt the hard disk upon startup, the system will allow a user to bypass Multifactor Authentication rules during initial startup and first login.


This setting is enforced using the 'Smart Card' configuration profile.
