Enable or Disable Registry Protection Settings on the Endpoint

To prevent attackers from tampering with the Traps registry keys, use the cytool protect enable registry command to restrict access to the registry keys stored in HKLM\SYSTEM\Cyvera. To disable protection of the registry keys, use the cytool protect disable registry command.
Making changes to the registry protection settings requires you to enter the supervisor (uninstall) password when prompted.
  1. Open a command prompt as an administrator and navigate to the Traps folder (see Access Cytool).
  2. To manage the protection settings of registry keys on the endpoint, use the following command:
    C:\Program Files\Palo Alto Networks\Traps>cytool protect [enable|disable] registry
    The following example displays output for enabling protection of registry keys. The Mode column displays the revised protection status, either Enabled or Disabled, or Policy when using the settings in the local security policy to protect registry keys.
    C:\Program Files\Palo Alto Networks\Traps>cytool protect enable registry
    Enter supervisor password:
    Protection Mode State
    Process Policy Disabled
    Registry Enabled Enabled
    File Policy Disabled
    Service Policy Disabled
    To use the settings in the local security policy to protect registry keys on the endpoint, see Use the Security Policy to Manage Service Protection.
