  • Shared Drive Security

    Hi All


    Sorry if this is the wrong place for security topics but I felt it fitted in best with Windows 2003.
    I currently have a Main server running Windows 2003 Server RS2 Standard and this machines main role is to provide a shared drive, there are over 50 individual shared drives for backup, and four main shared drives of which some individuals can access these group shares.

    Is there a way of getting this encrypted with SSL or some sort of security? What’s best practise for this sort of role?

    Most machines are Windows XP Pro, And 5 Mac OS X

    What do you want to achieve? The file encrypted on the drives or the transfer between the server and desktop?
    cheers

      Hi Andy

      Not sure to be honest, just would like it more secure in some sense

        You could investigate IPSEC
        http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/n.../bb531150.aspx
        Not sure about implementation for MACs though.

        Would be good to make a decision as to what you do or don't want people to be able to do though first.
        cheers

          Sure.

          Is there any way of making sure this device cant be seen by machines searching the network for any device?

            You could install a firewall on it and allow only certain IP addresses, you could enable filtering on the local card, VLANs on your switches, blocking unknown MAC addresses on the switches etc etc.

              Perhaps a longer/better description of exactly what your aspirations are with regard to this machine would be helpful.
              1 1 was a racehorse.
              2 2 was 1 2.
              1 1 1 1 race 1 day,
              2 2 1 1 2

                Best way to do this is to use ISPEC as Andy said. Google "Server Isolation"
