Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit 2.0
EMET provides users with the ability to deploy security mitigation technologies to arbitrary applications. This helps prevent vulnerabilities in those applications (especially line of business and 3rd party apps) from successfully being exploited. By deploying these mitigation technologies on legacy products, the tool can also help customers manage risk while they are in the process of transitioning over to modern, more secure products. In addition, it makes it easy for customers to test mitigations against any software and provide feedback on their experience to the vendor.
The installation package for EMET v2.0 includes a detailed user guide. A copy can also be found at the bottom of this post. It gives an overview of the tool, instructions on how to use it, answers to frequently asked questions, and caveats about the mitigations that users should be aware of. Please be sure to read the guide before using the tool.
