NSA offers Vista installation tips

Microsoft got input from the National Security Agency for a document with tips on how to use the Windows Vista operating system in larger organizations.

The National Security Agency Information Assurance Directorate reviewed the Windows Vista Security Guide and provided comments that were incorporated in the published version, according to Microsoft. The U.S. Department of Commerce's National Institute of Standards and Technology, NIST, had a similar role, Microsoft said.

"Feedback from these agencies as well as enterprise customers informed Microsoft's development of a security configuration guide to aid governments and other large organizations in deploying and configuring Windows Vista to meet their specific security and privacy needs," a Microsoft representative said in an e-mailed statement Tuesday.
