SAFER security levels

Reading Michael Howards blog, I saw an article about safer browsing using software restriction policies.


 


Browsing the Web and Reading E-mail Safely as an Administrator, Part 2


 


He mentions there are 3 security levels that are not normally displayed in the Group Policy Editor


 


Unfortunately he only tells us the value to get Basic User to display, so I have added the others below.


 


Values


0x10000 – Constrained (also named Restricted)


0x20000 – Normal User (also named Basic User)


0x01000 – Untrusted


0x31000 – to get all 3 


 


Copy the text below to make a reg file


 


Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00


 


[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Safer\CodeIdentifiers]
“Levels”=dword:00031000
