IIS 7.0 security notes

A short outline of what IIS 7.0 brings to the security table.

Secure by default

  • builds on IIS 6.0’s success
  • all features and modules disabled by default


  • lightweight  server core
  • 40 feature modules can be plugged in
  • public extensibility APIs – build your own modules and features (i.e. replace built in auth, provide your own response compression)
