Hey ekÆsine,

OK let me educate you on security and the many
ways to use the OS to your advantage.
Local Policies
Deny Logon Locally (Everyone) But add owner.
Log on Locally (Remove Everyone) But add owner.
Restore Files and Directories (Remove Everyone) But add owner.
Take Ownership of files of other objects (Remove Everyone) But add owner.
Recovery Console Allow Automatic Administrative Login (Disabled)
Recovery Console Allow copy and access to all drive and all folders (Disabled)
Restrict CD-ROM access to locally logged on user only (Enabled)
Restrict Floppy Drive Access to locally logged on user only (Enabled)
Shut down system immediately if unable to log security audits (Enabled)
Audit logon events (Success and Failure)
Audit object access (Success and Failure)
Audit privilege user (Success and Failure)
Encrypted Data Recovery Agent (Remove Administrator)
Group Policy Domain Controller Selection (Disabled)
Disjoin computer from Domain to prevent other policies
from overriding the local policies.

Set the Bios password and put in the security screws in back of case. In Bios make sure it is only allowed to boot from the Hard disk. Change the password the administrator gave you to logon to the network. Install Triple DES Encryption software to meet these standards

etc
etc
etc

Wow seems like that Linux boot disk won't work in the computer now. I guess to answer you question no it is NOT secure because ekÆsine would just steal the whole computer pull the hard drive and try to break the Triple DES encryption on the files.

And for the next lesson we will discuss LETS STICK TO THE TOPIC!

exactly. i would wait until holloween rolls around than buy one of those Agent Smith costumes from the Matrix movie. i would than pretend to be working for the FBI and show him my fake badge i purchased from the local 99cent store.

i would than proceed to come into his residence and ask him "sir, we have reason to believe someone in this household is aiding and abetting a known terrorist group. we have subpoenaed all the pr0n websites you subscribe to and traced it back to this location."

while he was not looking i would just YOINK...and flee away with his computer..... Worked4me why would i use linux CD? i know absolutely nothing about EFS, yet i was able to find this with a simple google search:

http://www.crackpassword.com/product...s/features.php

btw Worked4me, you are such a hypocrite man. you are as guilty to contributing to this thread being off-topic as much as i am. if this guy want his data to be secure he should use the trilple blowfish cipher, not triple DES.

Hey ekÆsine,

You are right at this point I don't think anyone could figure
out the topic. I do like to have these Debates (Discussions)
because I think it is healthy to disagree at times. It also
clears up a lot of misconceptions that we have about are
computer being secure.

All I ask if when you come to work and your own my network
don't start playing around with all the neat tools you found on the internet over the weekend, because the Boss doesn't think it's funny the server crashed and maybe down for 2 hours.

this has turned out to be an interesting thread.
and no, i do not subscribe to porn.

i am gonna try and digest all that file system information and then i will try to secure my computer in the way you guys suggested.

perhaps i should put it in some sort of all ali baba cave. then it will be truly secure

NTFS IS more secure. File permissions set at the folder/file levels is one of many. Talking about covert operations to get his info, well if thats the case then I would just need to get a ERD disk to do that. He's not saying it's completely secure, but it IS more secure. Hey, it's better than nothing.
