In this session, we discuss the innovative design philosophies and development strategies involved in making Windows Vista the most secure Windows operating system yet. We describe security features like Windows Service Hardening, which restricts critical Windows services from doing abnormal activities that could allow malicious software to install itself or attack other computers. We illustrate several user-level security features within the Windows Vista interface, in addition to the antispyware and anti-phishing enhancements in Windows Internet Explorer 7, like Windows Defender and Phishing Filter. Learn how Windows Firewall has undergone significant improvements, including enhanced UI functionality, inbound and outbound filtering, filtering by application, and full support for Internet Protocol version 6. We also cover the other security enhancements available in Windows Vista, such as Windows BitLocker Drive Encryption, data protection, and improved smart card support.
