What's New In IIS 6.0: A Practical Administrative Guide (Part 2 of 2) : Page 5

The first article in this two-part series explored IIS 6.0's new features. This part of the series concentrates on the "hands on" activities to implement and manage those new features. You'll see how to configure IIS 6.0 to leverage Web services extensions, enable ASP.NET processing, and troubleshoot some new IIS 6.0 issues.

Sub-Authentication Error (401 Error)
The sub-authentication component (iissuba.dll) manages anonymous accesses to Web sites. This DLL is not enabled by default in IIS 6.0. This was done to avoid potential security risks due to anonymous access. You can enable the sub-authentication component by registering iissuba.dll and setting the AnonymousPasswordSync attribute in the Metabase to true. The IIS administrator will get a warning when anonymous access is enabled.
Author's Note: The sub-authentication component for anonymous access is enabled by default in IIS 5.0 and below, but not enabled by default in IIS 6.0

You can see by the number of new security, scalability, and server health features that IIS 6.0 raises the bar in the Windows Web server space. IIS 6.0 increases scalability and server health by using the worker process model. The change in default settings and the new focus on security reflect Microsoft's new security emphasis via its Trustworthy Computing initiative. The XML Metabase creates a more flexible mechanism for storing server settings, and increase both the simplicity and power of IIS administration.
