Security Much Improved with IIS7

Just finished attending the Microsoft Internet Information Services 7 and Security session (at TechEd), hosted by Mai-Lan Tomsen Bukovec and Robert McMurray. I spoke with Robert the other day; he was very knowledgeable and helpful.

The configuration and security changes in IIS are radical, but very impressive. In a nutshell, IIS7 provides improvements and new capabilities that increase security and simplify administration. Specifically:

  • Modular Design, Server Core support
  • Delegated administration
  • Built in anonymous user
  • Disable anonymous user
  • Integratged pipline
  • Request Filtering
  • URLAuthentation
  • Kernel Mode Authentication and SSL
  • Application Pool Sandbox
