Security Considerations & Macro Components for WinXP Embedded

Microsoft Windows XP Embedded offers developers a componentized version of the Windows XP operating system. Developers can pick and choose exactly those components required to fulfill their design requirements, resulting in a reduced footprint that is specifically tailored for their design. This article presents a technical overview of security considerations in the componentized environment offered by Windows XP Embedded.” Read the article at MSDN. “A component, the most basic element of a Microsoft Windows XP Embedded configuration, is an indivisible unit of functionality that can be included in an embedded run-time image. The next level of complexity is a macro component, which bundles several individual components. Macro components make it possible for multiple components to be included, or instantiated, in the configuration by instantiating only the macro component.” Read the article at MSDN.”
