Windows 2003 Server, its workstation cousin Windows XP, and its predecessor, Windows 2000, all bring substantial advances in both reliability and security compared to Windows NT
4.0. However, Windows security has so many different components that just learning them all
can be a major conceptual challenge. Additionally, the number and variety of threats to computer security are increasing daily, and the cost of lost, damaged, or compromised data can be very high.
This briefing lays out the main security features in the Windows 2003 operating system family, and puts them all into a "big picture" context. It is intended for any person who must plan, implement, manage, or administer Windows 2003 family security for networked desktop computers, notebook computers, or stand-alone systems. It is not intended as an exhaustive treatment of all the possible security breaches that a Windows network administrator may face, but rather as a framework for understanding, planning, and discussing specific security features, as well as organizational policies and procedures.
