Windows 11 22H2 adds kernel exploit protection to security baseline

Microsoft has released the final version of security configuration baseline settings for Windows 11, version 22H2, downloadable today using the Microsoft Security Compliance Toolkit.

While the new baseline adds extra defenses focusing on multiple areas, the highlight of the latest Windows 11 security baseline is the addition of Kernel Mode Hardware-enforced Stack Protection that provides additional hardware-level protection for kernel code against malware threats.

Further Windows 11 security protection improvements.

The Windows 11 22H2 security baseline also includes credential theft protection via the ‘Allow Custom SSPs and APs to be loaded into LSASS,’ ‘Configure LSASS to run as a protected process,’ and ‘Enable MPR notifications for the system’ to restrict the loading of custom security packages and block password disclosure to providers.

The Windows security baseline enables enterprise security admins to use Microsoft-recommended Group Policy Object baselines to reduce the attack surface and to improve the security posture of Windows enterprise endpoints.

The Windows 11 22H2 security baseline is now available via the Microsoft Security Compliance Toolkit.
