Keylogging and Password Masking
Table of Contents
Ekran System allows keystroke logging to be enabled to assist in the detection of malicious insiders and protect your sensitive data on the endpoints. In addition, to get information only on the potentially-suspicious activities, you can enable the recording of user activity to be started automatically on detection of specific keywords typed.
To ensure GDPR compliance, all keystrokes logged are hidden in the Session Viewer and in reports, but searches can be performed on this data, and alerts can be created to trigger when specific words are typed.
If you want to enable the displaying of keystrokes in the Session Viewer and in reports, please contact us at: https://www.ekransystem.com/en/support/contact-support; or send an email to: [email protected]
Keystrokes logged are encrypted in the MS SQL and PostgreSQL databases by the unique Ekran System Master Certificate which is generated on installation. This means that persons having direct access to the database, will not be able to review the keystrokes logged.
During monitoring, Ekran System Client detects passwords using regular expressions. Passwords that match regular expression are masked by asterisks and are not sent to the Ekran Server.
If you need to change a default regular expression to detect passwords that meet your password policy, please contact us at: https://www.ekransystem.com/en/support/contact-support; or send an email to: [email protected]
