My deployed base policy. This policy rarely changes and all additional allow rules (except a separate deny-rule base policy) are defined in supplemental policies.

A hypothetical AppID Tagging Policy that ConvertFrom-CIPolicy will successfully convert into binary form. Note: at the time of committing this, I have no idea what the purpose of an "AppID Tagging Policy" is.

Microsoft Defender for Endpoint does a great job of ensuring the integrity of the scripts they push and execute.

First, they ensure that the script to execute matches the expected file hash. Example:

powershell.exe -ExecutionPolicy AllSigned -NoProfile -NonInteractive -Command "& {$OutputEncoding = [Console]::OutputEncoding =[System.Text.Encoding]::UTF8;$scriptFileStream = [System.IO.File]::Open('C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection\DataCollection\7910.6064030.0.6552433-3a7d9fb541a03fc183f740777b7bb1aa20a20efd\046a3caf-d9ec-4da6-a32a-fb148992596a.ps1', [System.IO.FileMode]::Open, [System.IO.FileAccess]::Read, [System.IO.FileAccess]::Read);$calculatedHash = Get-FileHash 'C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection\DataCollection\7910.6064030.0.6552433-3a7d9fb541a03fc183f740777b7bb1aa20a20efd\046a3caf-d9ec-4da6-a32a-fb148992596a.ps1' -Algorithm SHA256;if (!($calculatedHash.Hash -eq 'd871ab44a81b93cdf3c7e235c246ea8b4bf65d9141d7797270c15dd6bbdb2803'))
