This is the first of two books serving as an expanded and up-dated version of Windows Server 2003 Security Infrastructures for Windows 2003 Server R2 and SP1 & SP2. The authors choose to encompass this material within two books in order to illustrate the intricacies of the different paths used to secure MS Windows server networks.

Since its release in 2003 the Microsoft Exchange server has had two important updates, SP1 and SP2. SP1, allows users to increase their security, reliability and simplify the administration of the program. Within SP1, Microsoft has implemented R2 which improves identity and access management across security-related boundaries. R2 also improves branch office server management and increases the efficiency of storage setup and management. The second update, SP2 minimizes spam, pop-ups and unwanted downloads. These two updated have added an enormous amount of programming security to the server software.

• Covers all SP1 and SP2 updates
• Details strategies for patch management
• Provides key techniques to maintain security application upgrades and updates

    Excellent security Resource on Windows 2003 R2

    This book is a first one of two in series that covers part1,part 2 and part 3. Part1 has good introduction about Security Authorities and Principals and Trusted Relations ships. It has a very detailed level of step to step notes on teaching basic security principles on Windows Server 2003 Release 2. Part 2 describes Authentication that covers Windows Authentication, Kerberos,IIS and Single sign-on. Part2 has very interested topics covered in a detail explanation of Kerberos and IIS authentication. The single sign-on is something all new System administrators should look in to. Unix authentication integration explains the way windows and UNIX are compatible with each other in securing the network. Part 3 talks about Authorization. It covered important topics like Windows Authorization, Active Directory authorization and Active Directory Delegation. Active Directory security is given top priority in attempting to secure Windows Server 2003 environment. This is the heart of complete windows systems and it was covered very well. Authors Jan De Clercq and Guido Grillenmeier have done a good job in introducing all these new and important features in securing Windows 2003 server. I recommend this book to beginners to experienced professionals as it has very good topics for everyone.
