CB Defense: How to Generate "Code Requirement" For Granting Sensor Full Disk Access (pre-Big Sur)

Environment

  • CB Defense PSC Sensor: 3.2.1.10 - 3.4.x.x
  • Apple macOS: 10.14.5 - 10.15.x (pre-Big Sur)
  • Jamf Pro: 10.9 and higher

Objective

Generate the identifier string for the "Code Requirement" portion of the Privacy Preferences payload to grant Full Disk Access (FDA) to Sensor through Jamf policy

Resolution

  1. Open Terminal on the machine running the Sensor
  2. Run this command to generate the identifier string
    codesign -dr - /Applications/Confer.app/Contents/MacOS/CbDefense
  3. Copy the output in its entirety into the Code Requirement section of the Privacy Preferences payload

Additional Notes

  • The identifier string listed in the CB Defense: How to Enable Full Disk Access for Sensor on macOS 10.14.5 and Higher KB applies to all 3.2.x.x thru 3.4.x.x sensors at the time of this writing
  • Sometimes errors can occur as a result of copying and pasting the identifier string from a Web Browser, so manual generation of the identifier string is a good troubleshooting step
  • Jamf documentation on granting FDA can be found here
  • Carbon Black recommends granting the Sensor Full Disk Access
