Secure MOSS site : Lockdown

Dear Reader,

Thought i should blog this today. As we know MOSS 2007 replaces Microsoft Content Management System, the MOSS sites are exposed to internet with the help of publishing site templates. I have noticed in many sites that the other collaboration pages like Allitems.aspx, Dispforms.aspx and other forms are accessible when we browse the site as a anonymous user. Hope the developers are not aware of the Lockdown feature avalible in sharepoint MOSS 2007. If we enable this feature the anonymouse users cannot access these collabration related pages.

To enable this feature the following command needs to be executed:

stsadm -o activatefeature -url -filename ViewFormPagesLockDown\feature.xml

If you have tried any other alternative way to implement this feel free to write it down.

Hope this helps & create an awareness to make your MOSS site safe & secured.
