Reducing the Effectiveness of Pass-the-Hash , 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.
