SP4 Security Configuration Manager Available for Download


Windows NT 4.0 Service Pack 4 (SP4) includes Security Configuration Manager (SCM) as an optional component. SCM is an integrated security system that gives administrators the ability to define and apply security configurations for Windows NT Workstation and Windows NT Server installations. SCM also has the capability to perform inspections of the installed systems to locate any degradation in the system's security. For further information on SCM, including installation and usage instructions, refer to the Readme.txt file in the Mssce folder on your Windows NT 4.0 Service Pack 4 CD-ROM.

NOTE: The Readme.txt file refers to the Security Configuration Manager as the Security Configuration Editor. These names are interchangeable.
