Book Review Learning Microsoft Windows Server 2012 Dynamic Access Control #winserv #BYOD @packtpub   1 comment

Recently I had the opportunity to read another Packt Publishing book about Dynamic Access Control.

This book is a bit off topic from my normal cluster stuff. The book is written by Jochen Nickel. The Dynamic Access Control book is not a large book. The book consists of 9 chapters which total 125 pages, but the book is all about DAC one role fully covered in a book.

If you start reading this book understanding of windows 2012 , Forefront Identity Manager & ADFS is needed. but even if you are starting with this it is a great place to start.

The learning goals of this book: ( more details )

  • Understand how Dynamic Access Control can help your organization control access to information
  • Identify and get to know the main building blocks and functionality of Dynamic Access Control
  • Create Central Access and Auditing Policies, including Transformation Policies
  • Classify information using different methods, including a deep dive into the File Classification infrastructure
  • Design and implement Rights Management integration
  • Extend your solution with third-party tools in particular for classification
  • Integrate Dynamic Access Control in SharePoint and other products
  • Discover the possibilities you get by using Dynamic Access Control for BYOD
  • Explore how other Microsoft solutions can be used as an enhancement of your solution

This book is in great detail and step by step samples, and if you a starter I suggest do take the paper book. this is easier but that is totally my opinion.

The book is one big step by step guide and even if you a starter on this that is no problem. there is a lot of explanations of the samples and great for learning. If you are working with the concept of BYOD there is a nice chapter on how to support this with work folders etc , I will not go into to much detail.

This book is a more practical book on how to do this but with explanations how to setup the DAC and the PowerShell commands and using the Claims. my favorite chapters are 8 & 9. Automation and troubleshooting, this is always a pain set it up and you have problems to get this working.

In chapter 9 there is a nice drill down on where and how to find stuff with nice details in the screenshots. as a sample finding Data quality in Active Directory is also a common problem, this is nicely explained.

I recommend this book for engineers who have the task or consider deployment/configuration of Dynamic Access Control in their environments.
