"Hardening" refers to the process of fortifying a system against unknown threats, which the author says is just as important as securing against known threats with umpteen security patches. This edition includes practical coverage of all recent versions of the vulnerable Windows operating system including NT, XP, 2000, and Server 2003, plus a new chapter on using Windows Software Update Services in a network. The guide includes quick-reference checklists for system administrators. Hassell is a North Carolina-based computer author/consultant.
