Improvements in the IP stack for Vista


I saw this recently and didnt get time to post it. Vista’s going to get some core improvements to security in the TCP/IP stacks and networking features.


Ttake a look here: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/itsolutions/network/evaluate/new_network.mspx


 High points for me are:




  • Auto performance tuning for maximum throughout


  • Fail back on a dead gateway detection – this is a good security improvement and just makes sense :)


  • Routing compartments to prevent routing between VPN and local network segments


  • Theres a new API for third parties to add firewalling functionality
