GEN000520 - The root user must not own the logon session for an application requiring a continuous display.
If an application is providing a continuous display and is running with root privileges, unauthorized users could interrupt the process and gain root access to the system. NOTE: Nessus has provided the target output to assist in reviewing the benchmark to ensure target compliance.
Configure the system so the owner of a session requiring a continuous screen display, such as a network management display, is not root. Ensure the display is also located in a secure, controlled access area. Document and justify this requirement. Ensure the terminal and keyboard for the display (or workstation) are secure from all but authorized personnel by maintaining them in a secure area, in a locked cabinet where a swipe card, or other positive forms of identification, must be used to gain entry.
