Here is an excerpt:
Since Microsoft Corp. products are usually robust, I was looking
forward to seeing what type of security features the company implemented
Windows NT Workstation Version 3.5. But after walking through the system
with Microsoft product managers and developers, I was dismayed to find
woefully short on security features Windows NT is.
Despite the fact that the U.S. government is expected to certify
Windows NT as a secure operating system, Microsoft's first serious
into security is not very impressive. Windows NT may pass muster with the
federal government, but it does not meet the real-world security needs of
corporations running complex, heterogeneous networked environments.
