Abstract: This session will present an overview of the new security technologies that Microsoft includes in Windows Server 2008. It discusses the new Windows Server 2008 security features in the areas of isolation and resilience, security management and access control. Among the topics covered are: BitLocker Drive Encryption (BDE), User Account Control, new Active Directory (AD) security features (Read-Only DC, fine-grain password policies and Server Core), and the enhancements in Windows PKI. Special attention is paid to how these new technologies can be turned into a real customer added-value and arguments that can motivate the upgrade to Windows Server 2008.
