In short, EMET is the “Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit” (thanks Microsoft for all the fun names!).
Basically, here’s the deal in a nutshell: Application vendors don’t always turn on enhanced security when they’re compiling their applications.
Good news: You can force Windows to turn on enhanced application security — for executions themselves.
Note: This does nothing for the underlying application’s security options and settings, which is what my next webinar is all about (www.PolicyPak.com/webinar)
So, I have compiled a bevvy of resources to jumpstart your exploration of EMET and utilize Group Policy to configure enhanced security.
So, here are the resources you’ll need to check this out:
Part 1: What’s the Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit (EMET)?
Part 2: Control EMET with Group Policy
Part 2.5: Microsoft’s blog entry on EMET
Part 3: Downloading EMET
