application and Internet Explorer snapshotting
Posted on 2006-04-04
I have been asked to provide an analysis of security risks associated with permitting access to applications within our environment via a SSL VPN gateway, in particular what things change on the system as part of an inital deployment of an application (ie. there may be registry keys that need to change), as well as what our exposure may be by means of sensitive data left on the pc after a connection has been terminated.
This data may be in the form of cookies, temporary web pages, etc.
I am after a tool that can do a before-and-after evaluation and comparisson. I have read a few articles that refer to sysdiff (but have been unable to locate it as M$ have removed the link from their site), but is there any other applications that may do a similar function ?
We do not run ZENworks, SMS, ManageSoft, Alteris (or any of the other larger Enterprise s/w management apps). This is for a once-off (simulate what a home user will experience in order to assess our level of risk).
Thanks in advance.
