7 7 Benefits Increased availability, capacity Seamless disaster recovery Flexible security options

8 8 What’s new in Exchange Server 2010? 1.Elevation of Client Access Server (CAS) role All client connections, regardless of protocol, are with CAS servers CAS servers rely on ADC for high-availability CAS is critical

9 9 Exchange 2010 Architecture Enterprise Network External SMTP servers Edge Transport Routing and AV/AS Phone system (PBX or VoIP) Client Access Client connectivity Web services Hub Transport Routing and policy Web browser Outlook (remote user) Mobile phone Outlook (local user) Line of business application Mailbox Storage of mailbox items Unified Messaging Voice mail and voice access

10 10 What’s new in Exchange Server 2010? Elevation of Client Access Server (CAS) role All client connections, regardless of protocol, are with CAS servers CAS servers rely on ADC for high-availability CAS is critical Microsoft recommends hardware load balancing for every Exchange 2010 deployment ADC recommended over NLB Includes multi-role Exchange server installations Includes installations with Microsoft clustering services ADC for highest availability

11 11 The F5 Solution for Exchange Server 2010 Prevent these pains –Dropped sessions  re-authentication, reconnection –Failed network connections  retries, delay –Slow response  trapped users These capabilities –Health monitoring and intelligent load-balancing –Client persistence –Server off-load –Availability of servers, arrays and sites

12 12 NLB and Hardware-Based Load Balancing… For Exchange 2010, the choice is clear… Which way to go?... Microsoft internal Exchange design: TechNet guidance for high-availability:

13 13 The F5 Solution for Exchange Server 2010 AvailabilityPerformanceSecurityConfiguration Intelligent load balancing Server and site level health monitoring SSL offload Cross-site resilience Robust persistence Server optimization Caching and compression for Web clients Reduced bandwidth use Bi-directional proxy AuthN/AuthZ from the perimeter Protection against application layer attacks SPAM filter Application template for error-free, fast configuration DevCentral online user community Integration with systems management User - Client to CAS server Mail - Mail flow through Edge Farms

14 14 Availability Health monitoring –Port/protocol requests –Real-time in memory connection tables Intelligent load-balancing –BIG-IP always knows the most available server –Least connection method –See application template Cross site availability –Site level health –Prioritized decision tree

15 15 Persistence Also known as affinity, or sticky sessions, persistence can help enhance a user’s application experience Different types of persistence: –Source IP –Cookie –SSL ID Each Exchange client connection type has a recommended persistence method

16 16 Configuring persistence profiles in BIG-IP Cookie Source IP and SSL ID LocalTraffic  Profiles  Persistence  Create

17 17 Performance - SSL termination Reduce cost and overhead of managing certificates by moving them to BIG-IP BIG-IP is designed with dedicated chipset for encryption/decryption calculations Increase Exchange server CPU utilization and network connections per second

18 18 Security Bi-directional proxy Secure remote access Pre-authentication Application layer security for web clients SPAM filtering

19 19 Introduction: Exchange ActiveSync ActiveSync protocol is used between smartphones and Microsoft Exchange for synchronization of Mail, Callendar and Contacts Username and Password are normally used for security. –One Time Password (OTP) or token is not used because it is not user friendly. Client SSL certificate causing managment issue when trying to manage client certificate on 100s of different devices. Using BIG-IP Access Policy Manager (APM) can be used to improve security for ActiveSync solutions.

20 20 Exchange marked share More than 200 Million installed Exchange mailboxes –http://download.microsoft.com/download/E/8/A/E8A15 4BF-CC BD CDB06B6E/ExStats.dochttp://download.microsoft.com/download/E/8/A/E8A15 4BF-CC BD CDB06B6E/ExStats.doc BIG-IP LTM and APM is a flexible tool and can be configured to improve security for ActiveSync users.

21 21 ActiveSync, Microsoft Solution Microsoft Solution Authenticate user before client accessing Exchange server Exchange 2007/2010 can verify deviceid AD group check and basic url filter can be implemented on TMG Data Center AD DMZ MS TMG or ISA MS Exchange

22 22 ActiveSync, F5 BIG-IP LTM & APM Solution SSL Offload Verify and enable access based on –User /password, AD group membership –IP location, Deviceid, Devicestype, Useragent –Brute force detection –ActiveSync commands used –URI (allow acces request to /Microsoft- Server-Activesync) –User home server Data Center AD DMZ MS Exchange

23 23 BIG-IP example of security options that can be enabled for ActiveSync SSL Offload URI Check (/Microsoft-Server-ActiveSync and /autodiscover) Agent Whitelist, Only Allow access from known devices type (based on agent information). Agent information also contains information about software version on phone. Verify source IP address and enable access from known mobile carrier Deviceid verification, Verify user AD attribute with information about provisioned Device id. Login Bruteforce detection, Disable source IP address for 90 second after 3 failed logon AD Group membership, only Allow Access for users member of ActiveSync Group Verify ActiveSync command sent from Smart Phone with white list of approved ActiveSync commands For large installation, verify AD information and route request to user home server Verify Username and Password

24 24 Access Policy in Visual Policy Editor Visual Policy Editor enables easy configuration of Access Policies for ActiveSync, without scripting.

25 25 Summary of APM Benefits Security for ActiveSync users can be improved using BIG-IP Access Policy Manager –Verification of ActiveSync URI and User-Agent –AD group membership verification –AD user Deviceid attribute compared with deviceid from mobile phone –Authentication of user after verification of URI, UserAgent, AD Group and AD Deviceid –Detect and blacklist bruteforce IP address –Verify ActiveSync commands from devices whith whitelist of approved commands –SSO for other Microsoft services such as SharePoint

61 F5 Solution for Microsoft DirectAccess

62 62 F5 Solution for Forefront Unified Access Gateway – DirectAccess Optimize secure remote access –Scale UAG servers for high- availability –Ensure best performance for new connections –Persist existing client connections

63 63 F5 iRules Rules for customized network traffic management Used on the internal BIG-IP configurations Connection tracking (server persistence) –Sets the session key as the source IP address –Associates the Source IP with the originating MAC of the UAG server –Adds it to a table on the BIG-IP to maintain persistence Pre-selection iRule (outbound persistence) –Ensures that outbound client connection returns to the server to which the client is attached –Tunnel between the client and UAG server is reused for server-originated traffic to the client

64 64 Common Questions What load-balancing method does F5 recommend for DirectAccess client connections? F5 recommends an intelligent load-balancing method based on numbers of client connections over ports 3544 and 443. The F5 built-in load- balancing method called “least connections” ensures that each new client is directed to the DA server with the lowest number of current connections. How does F5 achieve “stickiness” needed to persist existing connections? F5 has written and tested a set of custom iRules to persist client connections to one DA server within each user session. How can one obtain the F5 iRules for this solution? The connection tracking iRule and the Persistence iRule are available as part of the solution deployment guide.deployment guide How would F5 support a multi-site deployment of DirectAccess? Currently F5 recommends that customers design DirectAccess sever deployments by geographic region and scale out within each region as needed. Additional questions?Now is your chance to ask!
