This guide will assist personnel responsible for the administration and security of Windows XP systems. It contains information that can be used to secure local Windows XP workstations, mobile computers, and telecommuter systems more effectively in a variety of environments, including small office, home office and managed enterprise environments. The guidance should only be applied throughout an enterprise by trained and experienced system administrators. Illustrations.
