anonymous user in windows

By redcell593 ·
Hello,
Why does the O.S. need anon. users?
Are there differences in the need for Anan. Between XP Home and XP Pro?
What happens differently with Anan. user on a Windows 2000 network vs. a Peer to Peer network


1) what is its purpose,
2) does it have unique characteristics under different operating systems,
3) does it have unique characteristics under different LAN configurations,
4) what events are included in the event logs, and
5) how to protect internal and external systems from hackers that take on anonymous user rights.
thanks for the help

The anonymous logon system group in windows is any account that windows did not authenticate. It is mainly used for access to companies public web sites. In Windows 2000 one major security breach was that the anonymous logon was included in the everyone system group and by default had full control access. In XP the anonymous logon has ben removed from the everyone system group for added security.
