This section includes queries for automated checking of default accounts to prove that no default accounts or passwords are being used on your managed endpoints. Note that PCI DSS requires such checks to be done before any new systems are added to the CDE, however in order to demonstrate your current compliance, you also have to show that default accounts and passwords are not used afterwards.

2.1.a: Default Passwords
    Verify that that no endpoint uses vendor-supplied default accounts and passwords
2.1.b: Unnecessary Default Accounts
    Verify that all unnecessary default accounts are disable or removed
2.1.1.c: Default Passwords for Access Points
    Make sure that endpoints do not use default passwords to connect to wireless access points
2.1.1.d: Strong Encryption for Wireless Connections
    Examine all wireless connections to verify that no weak protocols are used to connect to wireless access points
