Course: SANS "SECURITY 505: Securing Windows". The Securing Windows
Track is a comprehensive curriculum for securing Windows 2000/XP/2003
networks. This program brings the confusing complexity of Windows
2000/XP/2003 security into clear focus by starting with foundational
security services, such as Active Directory and Group Policy, and
advancing in a logical progression to particular products or features
which rely on these foundations, such as IIS and IPSec. This Track
provides best practices for security, hands-on exercises, extensive
documentation/screenshots, a CD-ROM of security scripts, and an
objective account of Windows security (neither bashing Microsoft nor
toeing the party line). This Track will also prepare participants for
the GIAC Certified Windows Security Administrator (GCWN) certification

Who Should Attend:
  o Anyone who manages a Windows network
  o Anyone whose IIS web server was compromised
  o Anyone who is planning to deploy Active Directory, Group Policy,
IPSec or a PKI
  o Anyone who would like to learn how to automate and script their work
  o NT, Unix and NetWare administrators new to Windows 2000/XP/2003
  o Anyone interested in the security aspects of Active Directory

  A Sampling of Topics:
  o Active Directory Design
  o Delegation of Authority
  o Dynamic DNS
  o Group Policy Design
  o Security Templates
  o PKI Installation and Management
  o Encrypting File System
  o Smart Cards and Tokens
  o IPSec and VPNs
  o 802.1X Wireless Security
  o Making An IIS Bastion Host
  o IIS Authentication and Authorization
  o IIS ISAPI Extensions and Filters
  o Windows Scripting Skills

Instructor: Jason Fossen is the founder and president of Fossen
Networking & Security, which provides consultation for Microsoft Windows
2000/XP/2003 solutions and security. In addition to the consulting
practice, Jason is also a prolific author and guest speaker at national
security conferences on a variety of topics, including cryptography, PKI
deployment, firewall design, web server security, IPSec, and Virtual
Private Networking. Jason graduated from the University of Virginia and
received his Master's degree from the University of Texas at Austin.

I hope to welcome you in Charlottesville in June!
