Defending Against Credential-Based and Privilege Escalation Attacks
Provided By: Attivo Networks   Send Email to POC   View Content   Mar 2021
Giving the right user secure access to a system, resource, application, or network hinges on one thing - accurately confirming the user's identity. Organizations often rely on directory services such as Active Directory (AD) to authorize account access verifying a username and password combination. The problem is that attackers can steal and misuse these credentials for malicious purposes, and the organization would never know. Since the credential is valid, the attacker gains access to everything the legitimate user has access to. If attackers steal credentials that ha ...
