Windows XP Security Guide Version 2.1 now available


This version of the Windows XP Security Guide was updated to provide additional security guidance for:


  • Maintaining different levels of security and control on Windows XP client computers.

  • Securing Windows XP client computers that are not members of an Active Directory domain.

  • Security settings for computers that must function reliably in extremely critical roles in high security environments.


Information about the security features in SP2 was included as an appendix in the previous version of this guide. This information has now been integrated throughout the guide, and thoroughly tested templates for Windows Firewall security settings are provided. Information is also provided about closing ports, Remote Procedure Call (RPC) communications, memory protection, e-mail handling, Web download controls, spyware controls, and much more.
