In today's business environment it is no longer safe to conduct any business on the Internet without first protecting it. Small, medium, and large corporations require a massive dose of security to protect themselves and their digital assets from unwanted intruders. A managerial guide and practical technical tutorial, Securing Windows NT/2000: From Policies to Firewalls provides viable security solutions for your organization. The author presents in-depth knowledge on how, why, and where these operating systems must be tuned in order to use them securely to connect to the Internet. The book includes the steps required to define a corporate security policy, how to implement that policy, and how to structure the project plan. Tables, charts, and work templates provide a starting point to begin assessing and implementing a solution that will fit the unique needs of your organization. Part two provides the reader with practical hands-on applications for the preparation, installation, and tuning of Windows NT/2000 operating systems. Securing Windows NT/2000 provides step-by-step instructions that guide you through performing a secure installation and in preparing the system for secure operation on the Internet. Although a multitude of firewall application software can be used in conjunction with the sections detailing the securing of the operating system, Check Point FireWall-1/VPN-1 is used as it best demonstrates the effectiveness of translating the corporate security policy into a practical reality.
