        Security Configuration Wizard (SCW) is an attack surface reduction tool for members of the Microsoft® Windows Server™ 2003 family with Service Pack 1 (SP1). SCW determines the minimum functionality required for a server's role or roles, and disables functionality that is not required.

        SCW guides you through the process of creating, editing, applying, or rolling back a security policy based on the selected roles of the server. The security policies that are created with SCW are XML files that, when applied, configure services, network security, specific registry values, audit policy, and if applicable, Internet Information Services (IIS).

        The Security Configuration Wizard documentation set contains deployment, extensibility options and troubleshooting tips to assist you in running the wizard.

        The SCW Quick Start Guide tells how to begin using SCW right away.

        The SCW Deployment Guide tells you what you need to know in order to deploy SCW and SCW security policies to your servers.

        Extending the Security Configuration Wizard describes how the server roles database that is included with SCW can be extended with custom server roles.

        Troubleshooting the Security Configuration Wizard provides steps to take if you’re having difficulty using SCW, such as if SCW policies are not taking effect.
