Welcome to the MCSE Training Kit—Designing Microsoft Windows 2000 Network Security. This kit prepares you to analyze an organization's business and technical requirements and design security for a Windows 2000 network. You will learn how to design security for all aspects of Windows 2000, from authentication strategies to Demilitarized Zones to protecting Internet-accessible resources.
This course supports the Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer program.
For more information on becoming a Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer, see the section of this chapter entitled "The Microsoft Certified Professional Program."
Most of the chapters in this book are divided into lessons, activities, labs, and reviews. Lessons include discussions of the key design objectives and then provide evaluations of possible decisions to be made within each design objective, and each lesson ends with a lesson summary. The activities and labs are designed to allow you to practice or demonstrate your understanding of the design objectives discussed within a chapter. Each chapter ends with a set of review questions to test your knowledge of the chapter material. Within each chapter a common scenario will be used to illustrate the design decisions you face when designing Windows 2000 security.
