Anonymous Connections
 
Is your network safe from intruders? With all of the different methods that intruders use to weasel their way into your network and servers, you can’t be sure. Hackers will use trojan horses, backdoors, compromised user accounts, and the front door. That is right, the front door! Ok, maybe a side door, but unless your Windows environment is protected, an intruder can use a door to your house that was put there when you made the installation. This “door” in a Windows operating system is the anonymous connection.

Applying Certificates to a WSUS Server
 
Many administrators tend to ignore the recommendation that WSUS be configured to use SSL encryption if the WSUS server is only servicing clients within the perimeter network. However, if SSL encryption is not used, a hacker could potentially steal the WSUS server’s identity and use the spoofed server to send malicious versions of patches to your clients. If you don’t like the idea of having a bunch of infected clients on your network, then check out this article on how to encrypt WSUS transactions.

Auditing Users and Groups with the Windows Security Log
 
Active Directory is one of the most important areas of Windows that should be monitored for intrusion prevention and the auditing required by legislation like HIPAA and Sarbanes-Oxley. I say that because Active Directory is home to objects most associated with user access: user accounts, groups, organizational units and group policy objects. This article deals with monitoring users and groups using the Windows Security Log.

Built-in Groups vs. Delegation
 
The administration of users, groups, computer accounts, resetting passwords, and group policy objects are some of the most important tasks that need to be done on a typical Active Directory network. When these tasks are assigned, there are two options within Active Directory to provide this access: Built-in groups and Delegation of Administration.

Changes to Default Settings Make Windows Server 2003 More Secure (Part 1)
 
One big change, very noticeable in Windows Server 2003, is the difference in default settings. In this two-part article, we'll look at how the out-of-the-box server differs in its defaults from previous versions and how the new defaults make the OS more secure (while at the same time causing frustration for some admins and users who find themselves unable to gain access that was available without any reconfiguration in earlier operating systems). In Part 1, we'll focus on how the default permissions have changed, changes to the membership of the Everyone group, and ownership of objects.
