Windows 10 Security with Isolated User Mode Processes and Features

I stumbled across these videos by Seth Juarez the other day, which explain the detail around Isolated User Mode and security improvements in Windows 10. There is a lot of talk about privacy and ‘telemetry’ in relation to Windows 10, however there is a bigger picture. This should make an interesting watch for those interested in security, Windows 10, Kernel security etc.

Interesting stuff for client side eg: lsass.exe now with lsaiso.exe / Credential Guard (more on this another day) and server side eg: vTPM.

Thanks to Microsoft, these videos are great.
