Citrix products offer the security specialist a wide range of features for securing a XenApp system according to officially recognized standards.
Security standards as they apply to Citrix XenApp 6.0 for Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 are discussed here. These topics provide an overview of the standards that apply to XenApp deployments and describe the issues involved in securing communications across a set of sample XenApp deployments. For more information about the details of the individual security features, refer to the relevant product or component documentation.
When deploying XenApp within large organizations, particularly in government environments, security standards are an important consideration. For example, many government bodies in the United States and elsewhere specify a preference or requirement for applications to be compliant with FIPS 140. These topics address common issues related to such environments.
These topics are designed for security specialists, systems integrators, and consultants, particularly those working with government organizations worldwide.
