XP (Pro) offers a lot of settings for its auditing, security, networking and other features. I would have thought Microsoft and perhaps even more so, various security web-sites would publish exported settings that would make a system super-secure, semi-secure, etc... In other words, a few setups ranging from "your-bank-pc" to "your-secure-gaming-pc" kinds of setups. So far I only was able to find such settings at http://www.auditmypc.com/ipsec-policy.asp
So one question is - do people know if this is a trust-worthy site? (siteadvisor.com seems to suggest it is but more confirmation would be nice).
Perhaps a more important question is did I miss similar settings published by other sites? Do you have any pointers?
I am being asked to setup a super-secure PC for banking purposes, and ideally it would only have access to a limited set of banking sites, and nothing else; thus disabling any and all other Windows connectivity. Any suggestions on this front would be greatly appreciated! I did not find any way to limit internet access to just a given set of sites (note - doing this at the browser level is not good enough since say a keylogger can use its own connectivity as needed to phone back to base), but I guess something along the lines of above settings at least tries to turn off various other protocols / features that I may not need!
Thank you for your pointers and thoughts!
