Ping Castle v126.96.36.199 releases: assess quickly the Active Directory security level
The risk level regarding Active Directory security has changed. Several vulnerabilities have been made popular with tools like mimikatz or sites likes adsecurity.org.
Ping Castle is a tool designed to assess quickly the Active Directory security level with a methodology based on risk assessment and a maturity framework. It does not aim at a perfect evaluation but rather as an efficiency compromise.
The tool will allow running the following functionality:
- healthcheck- report having the domain risk score. The tool will collect the most important information of the Active Directory and establish an overview. Based on a model and rules, it evaluates the score of the sub-processes of the Active Directory. Then it reports the risks.
- graph – Analyze admin groups and delegations
- conso – Aggregate multiple reports into a single one
- nullsession – Perform a specific security check
- carto – Build a map of all interconnected domains. This report produces a map of all Active Directory. This map is built based on existing health check reports or when none is available, via a special mode collecting the required information as fast as possible.
- Scanners – Perform specific security checks on workstations. checking workstations for local admin privileges, open shares, startup time.
* fix: the rule S-OS-W10 was triggering even if there is no enabled Windows 10
* added the rules A-DCLdapSign and A-DCLdapsChannelBinding
* added the rules A-CertEnrollHttp and A-CertEnrollChannelBinding
* if an api key is provided, test it at the beginning of the processing (instead of doing at the end)
* enable custom rules processing for Pro / Enterprise versions
* added the rule T-AlgsAES to check for trust algorithms
* fix a problem when Users container has been removed
* fix P-AdminLogin when administrator login date is in the future (can happen when reloading backups)
* fix perform PKI tests only if the PKI is installed
* reworked the rule set to be more performant
* fix a problem when a OU used for PKI has been manually removed
* fix S-PwdNeverExpires – HealthMailbox* accounts with a password change within 40 days are excluded
* fix S-Inactive – change 6*31 days to 6 months. If a password change occured within 6 months (no login) the password is now considered as active
* added for auditor licenses, a feature to have a dashboard for RC4 to AES migration in Kerberos
* change the powershell command to check for S-DesEnabled
* added SCCM listing
* added the possibility to specify honeypot accounts by a DN (the setting is “distinguishedName”)
* migrate to bootstrap 5, popperjs 2 and bootstrap-table (instead of datatables)
* added table export for licensed users
* fix rules checking for external path location (server.domain.fqdn) when uri is based on IP instead of FQDN
* fix the computation of constrained delegation with protocol transition (this impacts rule P-DelegationDCt2a4d)
* added a note for P-AdminLogin about S4u2Self
* added the rule A-CertTempNoSecurity
* changed A-CertTempAnyone and other rules so the program considers that the group Domain Computers is like Everyone if ms-DS-MachineAccountQuota is non zero
* added the rule A-DC-WebClient to hunt for WebClient service enabled on domain controllers
* modifed P-Delegated to add HoneyPot account checks
* fix change the evaluation order for Embedded systems (vs Winows 7) when reducing OS name into a short description
* modify delegations gathering: filter entreprise domain controllers and check base of configuration partition
