Information Week says you don’t have to wait for Vista to get its enhanced security – you can do it all now with Windows XP.
That tells me two things:
1) Vista’s security enhancements can’t be particularly mindblowing if you can replicate most of the behaviour now; and
2) Before you get started, you should ask yourself whether you can make the process less of a hassle than a top-shelf security guy could.
I’m not holding my breath.
Your best bet would probably be to attend the BlackHat get-together, and watch as Microsoft shows you how it is all done. I just hope the power doesn’t go out.
