    Re: Microsoft Works to Lock Down .Net



    Good link. This is one of the few articles on security that comes close to
    hitting the mark. They were pretty accurate, except for the guy quoted at
    the end. Security in .NET is definitely *not* an afterthought or retrofit.
    The security namespaces, and the code verification process is integral to
    .NET, and a planned section of its core. Furthermore, it's *tight*. The biggest
    concern, as the Foundstone group point out, is working with unmanaged code
    - something I pointed out in my last two VBPJ feature articles.

    The nice thing about this process is that admins now have the power to specify
    *exactly* what runs and what doesn't.

    eWeek seems pretty anti-MS (no surprises). The article is good but slighting
    ..NET security for problems with "unmanaged code" is a bit low.

    The IIS article is similarly full of it....

    www.activewin.com
    www.wxperience.com
    www.winportal.com
    www.winplanet.com

    This is a start. Each of these sites has a fairly extensive list of links.
    I'll let you take it from there.

    Well, whaddya know! Another nasty ABM site? Can *anyone* point me to a
    site that is 100% pro Microsoft (apart from Microsoft's own web pages,
    naturally.)

    Mike, I'd settle for a neutral site that presents the facts and commented
    intelligently on them. Suggesting IIS should be dumped because they exposed
    a default IIS installation (which is *known* to be insecure) on the internet
    and got infected is about as sensible as suggesting .NET is insecure because
    non .NET code (i.e. unmanaged code) is insecure.
