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.

Microsoft unveiled NGSCB, formerly codenamed Palladium, in 2002. It originally used a software component called a 'nexus' to shield applications.
