Security Policy Settings

In this subject

Security policy settings are among the settings contained in Group Policy objects (GPOs). When you edit security settings in a local GPO, only the security policy settings on that computer are affected. When you edit security policy settings in a GPO in Active Directory directory service, the policy settings affect sites, domains, and organizational units (OUs) to which the GPO is linked. Some settings, like password policy settings, are only operative at the domain level.

This subject documents security policy settings in Microsoft Windows Server 2003.
