End downtime forever! - Organizations today are relying more and more on Web services for the implementation of mission-critical applications. With the advent of Service-Oriented Architectures (SOAs),which make extensive use of the core Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) and the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), the Web server from the past has moved into a vital role in the IT infrastructure. Web servers have always been important and have often been problematic, but with the release of Internet Information Services version 6.0 (IIS) included as part ofWindows Server 2003,Microsoft has finally produced a stable, scalable Web server that is secure and reliable.To date, no security flaws have been identified on this critical server role since its release in 2003.
