Are hash rules available in Windows 2000, or is this something new that comes with Windows Server 2003? - Windows Server

Experts, We run a native-mode Windows 2000 single domain. We want to create a Group Policy object (GPO), perhaps named Software Restrictions, to prevent users from running unauthorized applications. I know you can do this in Windows Server 2003 by using a hash rule. For instance, we would create a hash value for the application's executable code file, and revise the Software Restrictions GPO to allow executable code files that match the hash value to run. My question: Are hash rules available in Windows 2000, or is this something new that came with Windows Server 2003?...

    This is a new feature that came with Windows XP. If your workstations are
    XP or above, you can use software restriction policies, even on a Windows
    2000 domain. You just need to manage the GPO with an XP workstation.
