    Windows NT and 2000 server hardening

    I was wondering if anyone had any links to guidelines for hardening either NT or 2000.

    I would also be interested in hardening Solaris, but that is not quite as important at this point as the MS OS's.

    I'm having to draw up a set of standards and "best practices" for securing our servers. So if there is any thing that is online that may help me, or at least point me in the right direction I would be greatful. Thanks in advance.

    Nice link faust ! I'm sure it's gonna help El Diablo, at least it does for me and it's very more useful than a google link, no offense.

    There are other links available there, search for 'securing windows'

    There is only one constant, one universal, it is the only real truth: causality. Action. Reaction. Cause and effect...There is no escape from it, we are forever slaves to it. Our only hope, our only peace is to understand it, to understand the 'why'. 'Why' is what separates us from them, you from me. 'Why' is the only real social power, without it you are powerless.
