All About Identity And Security On-Premises And In The Cloud – It's Just Like An Addiction, The More You Have, The More You Want To Have!

(2007-11-20) To DEC Or Not? That Is The Question!

Posted by Jorge on 2007-11-20

As you may have heart or seen right now, the Directory Experts Conference is scheduled for March 2008 (2nd – 5th) in Chicago (pronounced like "Chic-a-go", remembered this from a "Married with Children" episode). Like this year and last year, I’m delivering a presentation. This year it is again about the RODC, which is a follow-up from this year’s (DEC2007) session. The information about my session is:

TITLE: Securely Deploying and Managing an RODC. Improving AD security and mitigating risks!

SPEAKER: Jorge de Almeida Pinto – Senior Infrastructure Consultant (LogicaCMG, Eindhoven – The Netherlands)

SESSION ABSTRACT: With Windows Server 2008, Microsoft implements a new type of DC that aids in mitigating the risks of placing a DC in a non-secure location and assigning permissions to non-Domain Admins on DCs. This session will cover a high-level overview of the RODC, including requirements and best-practices. The specific focus will be on RODC deployment, managing it, explaining the possibilities for both and what you need to think of. This session will also include some cool demos!

Now why would you need to go there? Well, I don’t know! πŸ˜‰ Wait! Let me think and see if I can come up with some convincing things:

  • Knowledgeable Speakers:
  • Pre-conference workshop about all Identity and Access Management related technologies (ADDS, AD LDS, AD RMS, ADFS, AD Certs, MIIS/ILM)
  • High-tech cool presentations and demo’s
  • Ability and the time to talk to speakers
  • Having fun!

    Nice button – I will put it on my blog. unfortunately probably I won’t make it this year to States – maybe DEC Europe if there will be such.

    If You have opportunity … go there – definitely worth every minute spent there.
