Disable NetBIOS in Windows networks

13 octobre 2021 à 19:09

NetBIOS was initially created to allow applications to communicate without understanding the details of the network, including error recovery. It operates at the session layer, layer 5 of the OSI model. As with other legacy technologies, the main reason for disabling NetBIOS is security. There are two ways to achieve this goal: via either DHCP or a registry key.

How to migrate Active Directory Certificate Services to SHA-2 and Key Storage Provider

9 août 2021 à 20:09

Businesses need to migrate from the deprecated SHA-1 to SHA-2 to bolster their cybersecurity posture. They may still be running Active Directory Certificate Services (AD CS) using the SHA-1 cryptographic hash, along with the weaker Cryptographic Service Provider (CSP). In my previous post I discussed considerations when migrating AD certificate services to SHA-2. Let's look at how to replace them with SHA-2 and Key Storage Provider (KSP).

Migrating AD certificate services to SHA-2: Considerations and challenges

5 août 2021 à 20:06

Secure Hash Algorithm (SHA) has been around since the mid-90s and is one of the leading cryptographic hash algorithms used to secure digital resources. The initial standard (SHA-1) has now been around long enough that hackers know its weak points and can exploit systems secured with this hash algorithm. Therefore, it is time for organizations to migrate away from SHA-1 in favor of SHA-2.
