Windows Server 2008 PKI and Certificate Security

Fresh out of press (ok, it is out since beginning of April but I just saw it now): Brian Komar, the well-known author of several PKI books on Windows Server just released a new book called Windows Server 2008 PKI and Certificate Security. If you are planning a Windows Server 2008 PKI, this is a must-read (at least knowing Brian’s books J).

Here is the abstract:

Get in-depth guidance for designing and implementing certificate-based security solutions—straight from PKI expert Brian Komar. No need to buy or outsource costly PKI services when you can use the robust PKI and certificate-based security services already built into Windows Server 2008! This in-depth reference teaches you how to design and implement even the most demanding certificate-based security solutions for wireless networking, smart card authentication, VPNs, secure email, Web SSL, EFS, and code-signing applications using Windows Server PKI and certificate services. A principal PKI consultant to Microsoft, Brian shows you how to incorporate best practices, avoid common design and implementation mistakes, help minimize risk, and optimize security administration.

    Nobody in the US? If you click on the link above you get to our website and there is a link to O’Reilly where you can order it (in the US I guess, have not tried here at home):…/9780735625167

    Nobody in the US seems to have it or be able to get it.  I got an "Eastern Economy Edition" which states on the cover

    "For sale in Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka only."

    It seems like a not well vetted rewrite of the 2003 book.  I'm very disappointed.

    Is there a difference between the US and International version?  The only "US" copies I can find are going for $160.00 and up.  International versions are in the $20 – $50 range.
