Note

This material is adapted from the Windows 2000 Professional Baseline Security Checklist found on the Microsoft TechNet site and is current as of April 2002. Security information can change periodically. Please see the material online at http://www.microsoft.com/technet for any updates.

The material in this appendix is meant for your system administrator. If you have concerns as to the security of your system, your system administrator should follow the steps outlined in this checklist to assure that the proper security measures are being taken.


The checklist contained in this appendix outlines the steps that your system administrator should take to secure computers running Windows 2000 Professional either on their own or as part of a Windows NT or Windows 2000 domain. It is followed by sections that describe each item in the checklist in detail. The purpose of this checklist is to give instructions for configuring a baseline level of security on computers running Windows 2000 Professional. Security settings can be configured and applied to locally via the Security Configuration Tool Set. Security policies can be created by using the Security Configuration Tool Set and distributed and applied via Group Policy for those machines in a domain. This guide outlines recommended security settings for Windows 2000. A step-by-step guide to configuring enterprise security policies using the Security Configuration Tool Set is located on the Microsoft TechNet Security Web site: http://www.microsoft.com/TechNet/prodtechnol/windows2000serv/deploy/confeat/entsec.asp.
