Chapter 9. Networking with Microsoft Win... > Security and Windows Server 2003

Security and Windows Server 2003

Microsoft Windows Server 2003 provides many security features to protect data on your network. We looked at share and NTFS permissions in this chapter. Using user groups to provide different access levels to network shares is discussed as part of the security overview that is provided in Chapter 20, “A Network Security Primer”.

Windows Server 2003 provides a tool named the Group Policy snap-in that allows you to control a number of security features, including strong password protection and Kerberos Authentication. The Kerberos protocol (which supplies Kerberos Authentication) uses a system of tickets to authenticate users logging on and requesting services on the .NET network. Each domain controller in the Windows Server 2003 domain acts as a key distribution center. When the user logs on they are provided a ticket-granting ticket by the domain controller that authenticates their client account.
