Hello, Bruce here again. With the release Windows Server 2012 we all have to start learning the new features of the product. So I thought I would share with you what I’m studying and some resource to bring you to speed at the same time. Below is the first topic I’m starting to look at.
Dynamic Access Control (http://technet.microsoft.com/library/hh831717.aspx)
Today, it is difficult to translate business-intent using the existing authorization model. The existing capabilities of access control entries (ACEs) make it hard or impossible to fully express requirements. In addition, there are no central administration capabilities. Finally, modern-day increases in regulatory and business requirements around compliance further compound the problem.
Windows Server 2012 AD DS addresses these challenges by introducing:
- A new claims-based authorization platform that enhances, not replaces, the existing model, which includes:
- User-claims and device-claims
- User + device claims (also known as compound identity)
- New central access policies (CAP) model
- Use of file-classification information in authorization decisions
- Easier access-denied remediation experience
- Access policies and audit policies can be defined flexibly and simply:
- IF resource.Confidentiality = high THEN audit.Success WHEN user.EmployeeType = vendor
