How can you explain why Windows Server 2008 is built on a different core but Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7 are built on the same one? I also would like to find out the difference between the security changes in Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows Server 2008.

Hello April,

 

There are a lot of new features in Windows Server 2008. Below are the security changes in Windows Server 200.

  • PKU2U (Public Key Cryptography Based User-to-User)
  • Extensions to the Negotiate Authentication package
  • Smart card Plug and Play
  • Windows Biometric Service
  • Restriction of NTLM authentication
  • Online Identity Integration

These features allows Windows 7 users to link their Windows account to an online ID (using PKU2U), Group policies allow you to control whether to allow or deny this feature in your domain. PKU2U allows certificate based authentication using SSPs.

I hope it helps.
