Security considerations for printing

Mar 19, 2013

Citrix printing solutions are secure by design.

  • The Citrix Print Manager Service constantly monitors and responds to session events such as logon and logoff, disconnect, reconnect, and session termination. It handles service requests by impersonating the actual session user.
  • Citrix printing assigns each printer a unique namespace in a session.
  • Citrix printing sets the default security descriptor for auto-created printers to ensure that client printers auto-created in one session are inaccessible to users running in other sessions. By default, administrative users cannot accidentally print to another session’s client printer, even though they can see and manually adjust permissions for any client printer.
