    After a year-long effort to conduct a thorough forensic analysis of Internet
    Information Services versions 4 through 6, I've recently released a 400-page
    e-book detailing my conclusions, findings, and security recommendations for
    administrators and programmers who work with IIS.

    IIS Security and Programming Countermeasures

    FORENSICS.ORG is a non-profit computer forensics expert witness group. One of
    our missions is to provide affordable forensics services to the defense in
    criminal and civil court cases. We hope that this forensic guide to IIS
    security will be helpful as you decide what to do about your legacy IIS-based
    applications: migrate to IIS 6 or abandon IIS altogether?

    Feedback is welcome.
