In part 1 of this two part series, Scott takes us through a historical perspective of security at Microsoft and outlines what's new in Vista. In Part 2, we go whiteboarding and dig into the architecture of Vista security. The venerable Jeremy Mazner, technical
evangelist and software developer, joins me in conducting this interview.
