Subject: Announcing 2 NEW Computer Security Special Publications -- NIST

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is releasing
new guidelines for dealing with two of the most common sources of
security: poorly configured Web servers and email systems.  Special
Publication 800-44, Guidelines on Securing Public Web Servers, and
Special Publication 800-45, Guidelines on Electronic Mail Security, are
part of a series of guidance developed by the NIST Computer Security
Division and available through the Computer Security Resource Center Web
site (http://csrc.nist.gov/publications/nistpubs/).  NIST serves as the
primary technical security resource for civilian agencies under the
Computer Security Act of 1987.

The two guides are intended primarily for a technical audience, such as
systems administrators who are responsible for installing, configuring,
and maintaining e-mail systems and public Web servers.  The guides
provide not only generic guidance on how to secure such systems, but
also specific examples of applying the guidance to secure some of the
most popular email and Web products, for both Microsoft Windows and Unix
operating systems.  To assist the reader, the guides also contain
numerous pointers and references to related material.

Any questions or comments can be sent to Wayne Jansen ([EMAIL PROTECTED]).
