The Keystroke Logging Parameter

Keystroke logging allows the keystrokes entered by users on macOS Client computers to be monitored.

Keystroke logging events are detected by the system as user actions, separated by the user pressing the Enter key after entering any number of keystrokes.

If the Enable keystroke logging checkbox is selected (on the Editing Client / Editing Client Group page, on the Keystroke Monitoring tab, in the Monitoring Parameters section to enable this option, the macOS Client logs the user’s keystrokes.

Keystrokes logged are not displayed in the Session Viewer, but they can be searched (in both the Metadata grid of the Session Viewer, and on the Client Sessions tab of the Monitoring Results page).

NOTE: If you want to enable the displaying of keystrokes in the Session Viewer and in reports, please contact your Ekran System vendor or the Ekran System Support Team.

Keystrokes alert rules can also be defined to trigger an alert whenever specific keywords entered by users are detected.

macOS Clients log the following types of keystrokes:

• Character keys: Keys for alphabetic (upper or lower case) characters, numeric characters (0-9), all special characters, and the Space character.

• Modifiers: This group of keys includes the Control key, the Shift key, the Fn key, the Option key, and the Command key.

• Navigation and typing modes: The arrow keys, Home/End, Page Up / Page Down, Tab, Insert, Delete/Backspace, Enter, and the Caps Lock key.

• System commands: The Escape key.

• Function keys: Keys that perform various functions, such as printing or saving files, which are usually labelled as F1-F15, and located along the top of the keyboard.
