This document contains high-level information about how to include security measures for clients deployed by using BDD 2007. It discusses how security issues are closely linked with the development, testing, deployment, and operation of the solution and specifically how security enhancements can be incorporated into the computer imaging process.
The guidance and scripts provided in this document are a subset of those available in the Windows XP Security Guide at http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/prodtech/windowsxp/secwinxp and the Windows Vista Security Guide at http://go.microsoft.com/?linkid=5637271.
The work described in this document typically begins in the MSF Planning Phase after a commitment to the deployment has been established. The work continues through the Deploying Phase (which is not covered in this document), in which the computers are redeployed using the new Windows images.
The primary consumer of the work is the MSF Development Role Cluster, because most of this document focuses on the actual deployment in the production environment.
