GEN000595 - The password hashes stored on the system must have been generated using a FIPS 140-2 approved cryptographic hashing algorithm - CRYPT_DEFAULT
Systems must employ cryptographic hashes for passwords using the SHA-2 family of algorithms or FIPS 140-2 approved successors. The use of unapproved algorithms may result in weak password hashes more vulnerable to compromise.
If the /etc/security/crypt.conf file does not support FIPS 140-2 approved cryptographic hashing algorithms, upgrade to at least the Solaris 10 8/07 release. Edit the /etc/security/policy.conf file. # vi /etc/security/policy.conf Uncomment or add the CRYPT_ALGORITHMS_ALLOW line and set it to '5,6'. Update the CRYPT_DEFAULT default line to be equal to 5 or 6. The following lines are acceptable. CRYPT_ALGORITHMS_ALLOW=5,6 CRYPT_DEFAULT=6 Update passwords for all accounts with non-compliant password hashes.
