More Information

The Systems Administration Guidance for Windows 2000 Professional publication is intended to assist the users and system administrators of Windows 2000 Professional systems in configuring their hosts by providing configuration templates and security checklists. The guide provides detailed information about the security features of Win2K Pro, security configuration guidelines for popular applications, and security configuration guidelines for the Win2K Pro operating system. The guide documents the methods that the system administrators can use to implement each security setting. The principal goal of the document is to recommend and explain tested secure settings for Win2K Pro workstations with the objective of simplifying the administrative burden of improving the security of Win2K Pro systems.

This guidance document (pub 800-43) also includes recommendations for testing and configuring common Windows applications. The application types include electronic mail (e-mail) clients, Web browsers, productivity applications, and antivirus scanners. This list is not intended to be a complete list of applications to install on Windows 2000 Professional, nor does it imply NIST's endorsement of particular commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) products. Many of the configuration recommendations for the tested Windows applications focus on deterring viruses, worms, Trojan horses, and other types of malicious code. The guide presents recommendations to protect the Windows 2000 Professional system from malicious code when the tested applications are being used.
