2.3: Encrypt All Non-Console Administrative Access   String encryption for administrator access and disabling of non-secure remote login

If non-console (including remote) administration does not use secure authentication and encrypt communications, sensitive information (such as administrator’s credentials) can be compromised. An attacker could use this information to access the network, gain admin-level access to the network, and cause a data breach.

2.3.a Strong Encryption for Administrator Access
    Verify that a strong encryption method is invoked before the Administrator’s password
2.3.b Insecure Remote Login Not Available
    Make sure Telnet and other non-secure remote login commands are not available for remote access
