Terminal Services Doesn't Use Network Level Authentication (NLA) Only
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 58453
SynopsisThe remote Terminal Services doesn't use Network Level Authentication only.
DescriptionThe remote Terminal Services is not configured to use Network Level Authentication (NLA) only. NLA uses the Credential Security Support Provider (CredSSP) protocol to perform strong server authentication either through TLS/SSL or Kerberos mechanisms, which protect against man-in-the-middle attacks. In addition to improving authentication, NLA also helps protect the remote computer from malicious users and software by completing user authentication before a full RDP connection is established.
SolutionEnable Network Level Authentication (NLA) on the remote RDP server. This is generally done on the 'Remote' tab of the 'System' settings on Windows.
