Reducing the Effectiveness of Pass-the-Hash – A NSA/CSS Report

15 January 2015

Reducing the Effectiveness of Pass-the-Hash [5], a report compiled by the Network Components and Application Division of the NSA/CSS, is very recommendable for all Windows network administrators and designers.

The design guidelines given in chapter 3 give the foundations for secure operations of Windows networks. Strictly implemented they hamper the propagation of attacks through the network.

I am in no doubt, that the impact of the Sony Attack would have been far smaller, if this guidelines would have been implemented.

Enjoy reading, and, have a good day.
