A Pass-Through System Integrity Policy File

The demonstration for Licensed Driver Signing in Windows 10 requires a System Integrity policy file. This must be compiled from XML to produce a binary that then must be signed and installed. Though the conversion from XML to binary can be done simply by running a PowerShell command, it’s not simple for everyone because the PowerShell command is very particular about which Windows editions it will run on. So that readers can proceed with the demonstration even without ready access to the particular editions, the sample policy for the demonstration is about as close as can be to having no effect.
