        This guide is a reference to security settings that provide countermeasures for specific threats against current versions of the Windows® operating systems. This guide is a companion for two other publications that are available from Microsoft: • Windows Server® 2008 Security Guide (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=105788) • Windows Vista® Security Guide (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=74027) Many of the countermeasures that are described in this guide are not intended for specific computer roles in the companion guides, or in some cases for any roles at all. These countermeasures help ensure compatibility, usability, manageability, availability, or performance. This guide focuses on those Group Policy settings that are considered security settings; those that are intended to help organizations manage their environments are not documented. This guide examines only the settings and features in Windows Server 2008 and Windows Vista that can help organizations secure their enterprises against specific threats. The information that is provided within this guide should help you and members of your organization understand the countermeasures that are available in current versions of the Windows operating system.
