    In the Kali Linux course at 23:00, Sean runs EnumLinux command. He starts to discuss a Windows setting in the results "RestrictedAnonymous set to 1", which means that the Windows system can create a $null session, such as with 'net use' He mentions that you can protect this security flaw by setting the value in the registry to '0'. Does anyone know where this key is, or have anymore detailed information on what is going on here?

    I'd really like a comprehensive firewall for my desktop. I have tried a couple:
    Symantec - doesn't really do anything (silent)
    ESET - $50 a year and don't need the AV. (good prompts to white/black list IP connections).
    Comodo - freeware, but is the kind I am looking for (prompted when a connection is attempted.)
    If anyone knows a good comprehensive host firewall I'd love to hear it.
    I did google 'best firewalls 2017' but nothing really great comes up except ESET (yearly sub) and Comodo (freeware with ads for other programs).

    I understand Bell-LaPadula. You cannot read up and you cannot write-down in order to not expose data. I understand Top Secret, etc, classifications...however, I don't understand how you would technically apply this. Generally, controlling data access is with Windows ACLs, but you don't classify groups as Top-Secret, etc.
    Can someone explain a technical application to classifying data, ie) a real world system example?

    As a work around I used DISM 10 and added the drivers to the image, but can you use the WDS snap-in to add unsigned drivers?
