How to Create a Custom Security Template (Windows Embedded Standard 2009)


You can create a custom security template for your run-time image in Windows XP Professional, export it to an .inf file and then componentize it. By using the Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-in interface, you can configure the security settings of your run-time image.

  1. Use the Windows XP Professional Security Template MMC snap-in to create a custom security template .inf file.

  2. Use Component Designer to create a component that includes the custom security template and FBA initializations.

  3. If you want to use the MMC on your run-time image to manage the security policies, you can expand the number of security options displayed by adding a custom component to your run-time image.

  4. Use Component Database Manager to import the component to the component database.

  5. Use Target Designer to add the security component to your configuration.

  6. Build and deploy your run-time image.

  7. Verify your security template is applied to your run-time image
