Sheet1 Page 1 TOPIC about_Execution_Policies SHORT DESCRIPTION Describes the Windows PowerShell execution policies and explains how to manage them. LONG DESCRIPTION Windows PowerShell execution policies let you determine the conditions under which Windows PowerShell loads configuration files and runs scripts. You can set an execution policy for the local computer, for the current user, or for a particular session. You can also use a Group Policy setting to set execution policy for computers and users. Execution policies for the local computer and current user are stored in the registry. You do not need to set execution policies in your Windows PowerShell profile. The execution policy for a particular session is stored only in memory and is lost when the session is closed. The execution policy is not a security system that restricts user actions. For example, users can easily circumvent a policy by typing the script contents at the command line when they cannot run a script. Instead, the execution policy helps users to set basic rules and prevents them from violating them unintentionally. WINDOWS POWERSHELL EXECUTION POLICIES ------------------------------------- The Windows PowerShell execution policies are as follows: "Restricted" is the default policy. Restricted - Default execution policy. - Permits individual commands, but will not run scripts. - Prevents running of all script files, including formatting and configuration files (.ps1xml), module script files (.psm1), and Windows PowerShell profiles (.ps1). AllSigned - Scripts can run. - Requires that all scripts and configuration files be signed by a trusted publisher, including scripts that you write on the local computer.

RemoteSigned - Scripts can run. - Requires a digital signature from a trusted publisher on scripts and configuration files that are downloaded from the Internet (including e-mail and instant messaging programs). - Does not require digital signatures on scripts that you have run and that you have written on the local computer (not downloaded from the Internet). - Risks running signed, but malicious, scripts.
