NPS is the Microsoft implementation of a Remote Authentication Dial-in User Service (RADIUS) server. Besides acting as policy evaluation platform, it can be used to perform central connection authentication, authorization and accounting for many network access.

If you have any questions about NPS, like how to configure health policies for NAP, perform authentications (like EAP) for network access or develop authentication / authorization extensions for NPS – please come and talk with experts from our NPS engineering team.
