    Windows XP Service Pack 2: A Developer's View

    This document contains preliminary information about the security technologies in Windows XP SP2.

    Summary: With Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2), Microsoft is introducing a set of security technologies that will improve Windows XP-based computers' ability to withstand malicious attacks from viruses and worms. The technologies include:

    Network protection
    Memory protection
    Safer email
    Safer browsing

    This paper discusses the first two elements on this list.

    Together, these security technologies will help make it more difficult to attack Windows XP, even if the latest patches or updates aren't applied. These security technologies together are particularly useful mitigation against worms and viruses.

    This paper reflects early thinking about SP2 and its implications for developers. As we progress further, we will make more information available for developers on the Microsoft Developer Network (MSDN) Security Developer Center. The goal for SP2 is to build on our Trustworthy Computing efforts that have previously been applied to Windows Server 2003.
