as a followup to my earlier post on the Center for Internet Security and 
the CIS scoring tool, I took a few minutes to browse the www site which 
I had not visited for several months and I learned that this week a new 
version (V2.1.12) of the Windows scoring tool was released that now 
includes support for Windows XP Pro. It includes several .inf templates  
for WXP Pro including a US NSA endorsed template 
(NSA_XP_Workstation.inf).  As a point of information, you need to be 
logged on with administrator privileges to run the scoring check correctly.

Thanks to any on this list including SANS who were involved in the hard 
work to get this out. Obviously it is an important step forward for this 
compliance checking technology.

Best Regards,
