System Security Administration for NT

Abstract: 

System security administration has, for the most part, been largely ignored as network administration has flourished. The result of this is that there are large installations of NT that need to be retrofitted with some form of security administration and management system. There are various third party tools available to assist in this endeavor, but they are somewhat general and not tailored to meet the needs of a particular user or organization. System administrators must therefore learn to mold their infrastructure to the tool, rather than the other way around. Often times, the tools may also be quite expensive, and difficult to learn and maintain.
