This bunch is fun.
For instance, if (for whatever reason), you're using local accounts with
NFS home directories, this check is going to be relatively useless if
autofs is enabled.
Also, for 0206220, I use the PAM mkhomedir plugin to ensure that all users
end up with a home directory upon first login. Making that non-optional
will incur a failed login if the directory can't be created and is, I
think, a better approach than pre-creating the directories.
So, some of these checks are fine for a stand-alone system but relatively
pointless in an Enterprise architecture.

Hi SCAP folks...
I am curious what anyone working on the RHEL 7 STIG Alignment or
remediation thinks about these controls relating to "interactive user" home
directories. Is this something you see fit to implement through a
remediation script? It's one thing to setup a new system that complies
with these rules before new users start using it, but running a script to
correct this kind of stuff on an existing system seems like inviting a lot
Also, clearly there is nothing new in these controls specific to RHEL7,
should we expect to see these controls pushed into the RHEL6 STIG too?
Thanks for your thoughts!
