ITSY 2300 Hardening the Windows host
Windows Firewall • Microsoft Windows operating systems and related applications such as Internet Explorer contain thousands of security-related software flaws that can be exploited by malicious programs. • A fraction of those errors have been discovered, fewer have been repaired by Microsoft (in the form of “patches”). • Average loss to Fortune 500 companies is $2M per worm
Windows Firewall • Windows Firewall is installed and enabled by default for all dial-up, network, IEEE 1394 (FireWire), and wireless connections on a computer • Windows Firewall does not control outgoing connections unless Advanced Security controls are used. Because of this, Windows Firewall allows any program running on your computer to connect to the network.
Windows Firewall • General Configures general firewall settings, including whether the firewall is turned on and whether all programs are blocked when connected to public networks in less. • Advanced Configures protected connections, security logging, and allowed types of control messages. • Configuring Security Logging When logging is enabled, the security log is created as a standard text file and stored in the %System-Root%\ folder as pfirewall.log.
Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) What is it and why is a DMZ used? Benefits vs Drawbacks How is it implemented?
Accessing the DMZ Servers Internal User Accessing Web Server in DMZ External User Accessing Web Server in DMZ • Internal client requests web page • Packet is routed out firewall to ISP DNS • Packet enters back through firewall to DMZ • External user requests web page • Firewall checks packet for source and destination • Packet is sent to the Web Server in the DMZ
