Report Confidence:

This test checks the setting for policy 'Interactive logon: Do not require CTRL+ALT+DEL' on Windows hosts (at least Windows 7). The setting determines whether pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL is required before a user can log on. If the policy setting is enabled, a user is not required to press CTRL+ALT+DEL to log on. Not having to press CTRL+ALT+DEL can leave users susceptible to attacks that attempt to intercept the users passwords. Requiring CTRL+ALT+DEL before users log on ensures that users are communicating by means of a trusted path when entering their passwords. If disabled, any user is required to press CTRL+ALT+DEL before logging on to the Windows operating system (unless they are using a smart card for logon).
