Techniques Addressed by Mitigation

Domain ID Name Description
Enterprise T1003 Credential Dumping

With Windows 10, Microsoft implemented new protections called Credential Guard to protect the LSA secrets that can be used to obtain credentials through forms of credential dumping. It is not configured by default and has hardware and firmware system requirements. It also does not protect against all forms of credential dumping.[1][2]

Enterprise T1177 LSASS Driver

On Windows 10 and Server 2016, enable Windows Defender Credential Guard to run lsass.exe in an isolated virtualized environment without any device drivers.
