Active Directory Server. Enabling IT to remain in control of corporate information IT must still remain in control of corporate information.

Active Directory Server

To manage a single identity for each user, across both on-premises and cloud-based (SaaS) applications, you can leverage Windows Server Active Directory, Microsoft Azure Active Directory (including Password Sync), and Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS). Enforce conditional access policies by defining the resources and level of access each user has to information and applications based on who they are, what they are accessing, and from which device, using the Web Application Proxy and AD FS. Active Directory. A server running Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) is called a domain controller.

Active Directory

It authenticates and authorizes all users and computers in a Windows domain type network—assigning and enforcing security policies for all computers and installing or updating software. For example, when a user logs into a computer that is part of a Windows domain, Active Directory checks the submitted password and determines whether the user is a system administrator or normal user.[4] History[edit] Active Directory, like many information-technology efforts, originated out of a democratization of design using Request for Comments or RFCs. The Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), which oversees the RFC process, has accepted numerous RFCs initiated by widespread participants.

Controlling Service Security Using Windows Server 2008

Introduction Nearly every server that you have in your environment is running some sort of service. These services provide access to data, resources, applications, and other important areas of the server and network functionality. If these services are not protected, they become ideal candidates for an attacker. When a service is attacked, access to the server and potentially the network is at stake.

Security Enhancements Abound in Windows Server 2008. Six years ago, Microsoft chairman Bill Gates put security at the top of the agenda with the announcement of the company's Trustworthy Computing initiative. The fruits of this initiative are evident in Microsoft's Windows Server 2008, which is packed with new security features and enhancements straight out of the box. It's rarely wise to state that a new operating system is more secure than its predecessor because security flaws can take months to come to light after the software is released, but in the case of Windows Server 2008, we can say it with some confidence.

That's because it shares the same code base as Windows Vista, which was released more than 18 months ago—so in effect the code is already tried and tested, and security patches to Vista have been incorporated into the Windows Server 2008 code. What is proxy server. Proxy server. Communication between two computers (shown in grey) connected through a third computer (shown in red) acting as a proxy.

Note that Bob doesn't know whom the information is going to, which is why proxies can be used to protect privacy. Types of proxy[edit] A proxy server may reside on the user's local computer, or at various points between the user's computer and destination servers on the Internet. Forward proxies[edit] A forward proxy taking requests from an internal network and forwarding them to the Internet. Forward proxies are proxies in which the client server names the target server to connect to.[2] Forward proxies are able to retrieve from a wide range of sources (in most cases anywhere on the Internet).

The terms "forward proxy" and "forwarding proxy" are a general description of behavior (forwarding traffic) and thus ambiguous. Open proxies[edit] An open proxy forwarding requests from and to anywhere on the Internet. Reverse proxies[edit]
