MS returns to base
As a result of feedback, Microsoft has altered its Next-Generation Secure Computing Base (NGSCB) security technology to make it easier to install.
The technology will form part of the vendor's Longhorn operating system (OS), on which chief software architect Bill Gates revealed he was "betting the future of the company", and investing more than $6bn.
Microsoft unveiled NGSCB, formerly codenamed Palladium, in 2002. It originally used a software component called a 'nexus' to shield applications.
