WPAW-00-001600 - The Windows PAW must be configured to enforce two-factor authentication and use Active Directory for authentication management.
Due to the highly privileged functions of a PAW, a high level of trust must be implemented for access to the PAW, including non-repudiation of the user session. One-factor authentication, including username and password and shared administrator accounts, does not provide adequate assurance.
In Active Directory, configure group policy to enable either smart card or another DoD-approved two-factor authentication method for all PAWs. - Go to Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\Security Options. - Set 'Interactive logon: Require Windows Hello for Business or smart card' to 'Enabled'.
