As more and more large enterprises use Active Directory®, Microsoft has been investing time and effort to make it simpler to install, deploy, and manage. Devs will see enhancements to the System.DirectoryServices namespace in the NET Framework 2.0. In addition, Microsoft has added two new namespaces under System.DirectoryServices:ActiveDirectory , which provides Active Directory management, and Protocols, which lets you work with the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) 3.0 and Directory...

One of the most important components of Windows Server® 2003 R2 is Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS). ADFS solves a number of problems—one of the most obvious and compelling being business-to-business automation. In this article I'm going to take a look at ADFS from the perspective of a developer who is building a Web application and wants to allow other organizations to use it (for an administrator's viewpoint, see Matt Steele's article in TechNet Magazine. What kind of business-to-bu...

The company I work for had finally realized the benefits of a decent source code versioning system so after a short evaluation they settled on Subversion. To make user management easier they also wanted to use Microsoft Active Directory, so I set off on a quest to make Apache talk to our Active Directory 2003 server for authentication. Before I explain to you how I set this all up on Debian Etch I have to get something off my chest first. Sensitive people may want to skip the next paragraph....

If your company is one of the lucky? Ones to implement Windows 2000 Active Directory you may have been looking for a way to populate it with data. Perhaps adding peoples details from a file directly into the active directory. The problem I faced was a brand new active directory and a brand new exchange server 2000. In a standard Windows 2000 Active Directory, if I wanted to add a contact I would use the Active Directory Users and Computers addin. However when you install Exchange Server 2000 int...

Mac OS X 10.3 Panther- in both its client and server personalities- brings signifigant progress to Apple's place in Windows-centric organizations. Unlike the LDAPv3-based Jaguar strategies we examined in my earlier articles, Panther's capabilities have been specifically engineered by Apple to work in much the same way that a Windows client would when joining and participating in an Active Directory. This allows us to spend much less time on the basics of directory integration, and a lot more tim...

Authentication is easily one of the most critical services provided by your network infrastructure. It is the gatekeeper for every resource on your network. Workstations, applications, printers, and files would all be open to the world without a system of ensuring that only those people who need any given resource can gain access to it. Once you have accepted the fact that you need authentication, you must decide whether to stay with one network operating system in the interest of a completely h...

One thing to keep in mind is that – even when signed on in active directory - it doesn't offer a complete single sign on – yet. You will still have to provide a user name and password if using a windows based proxy server such as ISA server. You will probably still have to use a user name and password if using a windows based mail server (Although Evolution supports GSS API and through this you should be able to eliminate this sign-on – I will be trying this out at some point)....

One of the major headaches when dealing with Active Directory is the issues of accidental deletion of objects by un-trained or malicious people. Of course one must have the right permissions in Active Directory in order to be able to delete any object from it, but this does happen now and then. For example, you might want to perform a deletion of one object but instead select another one, and without giving it a second thought, pressing delete. You might delete an entire organizational unit (OU)...

Windows 2000-based and non-Windows 2000-based computers that have shared printers can publish printers in Active Directory so that the printers can be searched for easily. To publish a printer shared by a computer running Windows 2000, use the Sharing tab in the printer's properties. By default, the List in the Directory check box is selected. This means that the shared printer is published by default. The printer is published in the corresponding computer container in Active Directory. It is na...

How to prevent Windows from storing a LAN manager hash of your password in Active Directory and local SAM databases

Instead of storing your user account password in clear-text, Windows generates and stores user account passwords by using two different password representations, generally known as "hashes." When you set or change the password for a user account to a password that contains fewer than 15 characters, Windows generates both a LAN Manager hash (LM hash) and a Windows NT hash (NT hash) of the password. These hashes are stored in the local Security Accounts Manager (SAM) database or in Active Director...

There are numerous auditing options and configurations that you can choose from. We will take a look at each option and go over what each opti...
