It assists IT organizations by allowing you to block certain files from being saved anywhere, what file types can be executed in a directory, and can even whether or not you should allow software to install.We also discuss the use of parental controls as a cheap, easy method of restricting users to access certain websites,#installing #software from iTunes store, or restricting access to certain functions or applications.Also, the 2nd clue for our#DerbyCon #CTF can be found in this podcast... see if you can find the giant clue... :)**NOTE: We had an issue with Mr. Boettcher's#Windows 10 install, he's using Windows 10 Home, which does not appear to have Applocker or Software Restriction Policy by default.  So, I cut a lot of us bickering^H^H^H^H discussing how to get it to work, so the middle around 25:00 mark will feel a tad off. Apologies... I should have stopped recording.RSS FEED: http://www.brakeingsecurity.com/rssDirect Link: http://traffic.libsyn.com/brakeingsecurity/2016-018-software_restriction_policy-applocker.mp3#iTunes Link: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/2016-018-software-restriction/id799131292?i=1000368338483&mt=2#Google Play Store: https://play.google.com/music/podcasts/portal/#p:id=playpodcast/series&a=100584969 Links referred to during the podcast: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh831534.aspxhttp://mechbgon.com/srp/  - LOL, mentions the use of ‘parental controls’ to restrict systems http://www.instructables.com/id/Getting-past-Software-Restriction-Policies/ http://www.itingredients.com/how-to-deploy-software-restriction-policy-gpo/ https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/itpro/windows/keep-secure/using-software-restriction-policies-and-applocker-policies Comments, Questions, Feedback: bds.podcast@gmail.comSupport Brakeing Down Security Podcast on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/bds_podcast #Twitter: @brakesec @boettcherpwned @bryanbrake#Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/BrakeingDownSec/#Tumblr: http://brakeingdownsecurity.tumblr.com/Player.FM : https://player.fm/series/brakeing-down-security-podcast#Stitcher Network: http://www.stitcher.com/s?fid=80546&refid=stprTuneIn Radio App: http://tunein.com/radio/Brakeing-Down-Security-Podcast-p801582/
