This checklist is a companion to Chapter 16. Use it to help implement a secure Web server, or as a quick evaluation snapshot of the corresponding chapter.
This checklist should evolve with steps that you discover to secure your Web server.
MBSA is run on a regular interval to check for latest operating system and components updates. For more information, see http://www.microsoft.com/technet/treeview/default.asp?url=/technet/security/tools/Tools/mbsahome.asp.
The latest updates and patches are applied for Windows, IIS server, and the .NET Framework. (These are tested on development servers prior to deployment on the production servers.)
