About This Solution Accelerator

The Threats and Countermeasures Guide provides a reference to all security settings that provide countermeasures for specific threats against current versions of the Microsoft Windows operating systems. This guide is a companion to two other Microsoft publications: the Windows Server 2003 Security Guide and the Windows XP Security Guide.

The chapters of this guide are structured in a way that approximates how the major sections of settings are displayed in the user interface of the Group Policy Editor. Each chapter begins with a brief explanation of what is in the chapter, followed by a list of subsection headers, each of which corresponds to a setting or group of settings. (These settings are listed in the Microsoft Excel workbook that is available in the downloadable version of this guide.) Each subsection provides a brief explanation of what the countermeasure does, and includes the following information:

  • Vulnerability. Explains how an attacker might mount an attack if the setting is configured in a less secure manner.
  • Countermeasure. Explains how to implement the countermeasure.
  • Potential Impact. Explains the possible negative consequences of countermeasure implementation.
