14 AD is a service Fine-grained password policies means you can give each group and/or person a different password policy New backup tool means bare-metal rebuilds of a dead DC is a snap AD snapshots gives ISVs the potential to build AD recovery tools, auditing and forensic analysis tools

21 Main Office Remote Site Features Read Only Active Directory Database Only allowed user passwords are stored on RODC Unidirectional Replication Role Separation Benefits Increases security for remote Domain Controllers where physical security cannot be guaranteed Support ADFS,DNS, DHCP, FRS V1, DFSR (FRS V2), Group Policy, IAS/VPN, DFS, SMS, ADSI queries, MOM RODC

22 { Read Only Domain Controller }

23 Resources RODC FAQ ver2008/en/library/e41e0d2f-9527-4eaf- b933-84f7d3b2c94a1033.mspx?mfr=true ver2008/en/library/e41e0d2f-9527-4eaf- b933-84f7d3b2c94a1033.mspx?mfr=true

24 Remote Site Hub Read Only DC How RODC Works Windows Server 2008 DC 11 22 33 44 55 66 66 112233445566 User logs on and authenticates RODC: Looks in DB: "I don't have the users secrets" Forwards Request to Windows Server 2008 DC Windows Server 2008 DC authenticates request Returns authentication response and TGT back to the RODC RODC gives TGT to User and RODC will cache credentials RODC

25 Read-only DC Mitigates “Stolen DC” Attacker Perspective Hub Admin Perspective

26 No passwords cached (default) Most passwords cached Few passwords (branch-specific accounts) cached ?

27 Virtualisation Read-Only Domain Controllers Which run on Server Core Admin Role Separation Let Server admins be server admins DFS-R for FRS Cut WAN traffic, reduce exposure DNS Write-forwarding DNS servers in branch offices Bitlocker Blanket encryption

28 Management “despite” firewalls Implementation of WS-Management protocol Based on HTTP/HTTPS connectivity Baseboard Management Control or WMI WinRM is started, but no listener is configured WINRM QUICKCONFIG from cmdline Foundation of event log consolidation Windows Remote Shell (WinRS) provides command shell WINRS ex: winrs – ipconfig

29 Heartbeat New Validation Wizard Support for GUID partition table (GPT) disks in cluster storage Improved cluster setup and migration Improvements to stability and security – no single point of failure IPv6 support Multi-site Clustering Active Node Passive Node
