Windows Server 2003 Security Guide
Updated: December 27, 2005
The updated Windows Server 2003 Security Guide
provides specific recommendations about how to harden computers that run Microsoft® Windows Server™ 2003 with Service Pack 1 (SP1) in three distinct enterprise environments:
- Where older operating systems such as Windows NT® 4.0 and Windows® 98 must be supported
- Where Windows 2000 is the earliest version of the Windows operating system in use
- Where concern about security is so great that significant loss of client functionality and manageability is considered an acceptable tradeoff to achieve maximum security
These three environments are respectively referred to as the Legacy Client (LC), Enterprise Client (EC), and Specialized Security – Limited Functionality (SSLF) environments throughout this guide.
